Default Switching from O'Donnell 20% to Byrons 20%. have a question though..

ok i switched from O'Donnell 20% fuel to Byrons 20% with 12% lubricant. but my question is, with the byrons 20% with 12% lubricant smoke more? because it was running around 245-250 degrees and running great but it was smoking quite a bit. is it supposed too? but then i switched back to the O'Donnell and it ran great at the same temp but didnt smoke as much as the Byrons. Even though the byrons smoked a lot it still seemed to have decent fuel mileage. so my question is, since the byrons has 12% lubricant is it suppsoed to smoke more?
sorry if this is confusing lol
Thanks for any info
Dylan

which engine are you running also try pinching the fuel line to the carb & give it a few seconds 3/1,000 if it still has not reved high you might be slighty rich on the bottom & lean on top
245-250 after a running a tank is fine but it all depends on what motor you are using
