Its just the difference between the formulations of the 2 fuels. Your engine needs to be richened up with the odonnels a bit. Thats what I had to do when I switched between those 2 fuels.

The O'Donnel fuel has less oil than the HPI fuel.

yeah I asked about the tuning thing earier and I had to lean it because my needle was changed after I ran out of the HPI fuel it runs great!

Edit: also the fuel's oil is of a higher quality and thus there is less of it while keeping the engine cooler
