Q: accelerate smoke on 1991 Acura Legend

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
When accelerate from stop after idle. There is trail of smoke from tailpipe for a short distance. I notice more smoke the longer the car idle. Is there some type of additive can be added to fuel?
