Question about 2000 Ford Focus
5 litres of Ford SAE 5w -30w (Formula E ) ...available from Ford (or sometimes a lot cheaper off Ebay).
If you try and use anything else,( eg 10w-30 etc) then the turbo does not like it and the running becomes slightly sluggish

SOURCE: Smoke from exhaust
The most common concensus with white smoke is coolant leaking into some where in the combustion chamber as in head gasket, however you have said its not.
turbos unless there is massive internal damage usually blow out black/grey sooty smoke.
Is there bearing noise in the turbo at all? or Loss of boost?
If so it could be early indication of the turbo failing.
I would reccomend goign to a mechanic and having a leak down test perfomormed. Sometimes called a compression test. Or you could buy a decent compression tester and check it yourself.
IT coudl also mean tha tna oil seal is blown or leaking
Check your coolant resivour to see if there is any oil in there and check you oil dipstick to see if it is milky or off colour. Generally if there is either of these two it means that there is some \sort of leak between the two systems Oil and coolant.
Anotehr common problem with these engines is a crack or warped head itself.
However if your sure its not either of the above it could possibly be water getting into the combustion chamber via the injectors as in dirty fuel, however you would notice knocking and predetonation/ pinging surely. and generally the car woudl be running really rough.
Make sure you keep a good eye on the coolant level as if it runs out it will surely kill your turbo friend.
Hope this helps you out there,
