VW Passat 2.0 TDi problem?

My passat is just gone three years old, it’s a 2004 model with the more square-like back.
So the problem begun on my way home from Nottingham (UK) to Bristol (UK) Each time i accelerated it sounded as if the air vents increased their speed, and as soon as i let go of the accelerator they went quiet. i didn’t however feel any breeze so it couldn’t have been the vents.
Next day when i was going up to london on the motorway, the car suddenly started to slow.
In a few minutes it would go no quicker than 100kph. Then an error message came up on the dash saying “abgas werkstatt” which means emission workshop.
Later in the afternoon when i set off back to Bristol, as i started the car a really black smoke came out of the exhaust. It stayed that black until i got half way home (Still doing 100kph) then the gas went colourless, and when i stopped at a petrol station to check, i realised the exhaust fume smells odd not what it used to be like.
Anyone got any ideas to what the problem might be? Since the guy who i usually take my car to is on holiday ’till next week i thought i’d try to figure out what the problem is and how much it will cost to get his fixed. Any ideas appreciated!
i had about a half tank of shell v-power diesel left when problems started. since then i’ve filled up with normal diesel and its still not going properly.. and telling me to go see an exhaust workshop..

i’ve googled a bit and i’ve found a “lambda probe” and “EGR” mentioned on many sites. but i still dont know what any of these mean

    gas or diesel? gas..problem in fuel management. diesel air to air problem like disconnected intake pipe or hole in an air pipe

    My guess would be contaminated fuel, (petrol). It might be as simple as draining the tank and changing the fuel filters but it might also be necessary to reset the internal PC faults, (or worse). Remember where you bought fuel and don’t go there again.

    There are a few things that it could be but until you get it diagnosed properly it will be impossible to even put a good guess on the price.
    Could be the turbo, fuel pump, an injector, air filter etc etc etc

    sounds EXACTLY like contaminated fuel or petrol in the fuel, change the fuel filter
