John I did have a difference of over that not to long ago in the heat on a 272. I traded the saw off running 32:1 100% synthetic and 93 octane. It came back to me with hardly any power in the cut. He was using that stihl orange bottle dino oil 50:1 and fuel octane ( I dont remember).
I started it and you could here the fat 4 stroking sound and test cut no r's or clean up in cut. Checked with tach 9k. When that saw left a few weeks prior it was 13k.  Seemed to take about a half turn leaner  H clockwise or more to bring her back around to right r's and in the cut power with his mix.

My 357 used to be erratic too. What I used to check 199 carb acting up, plastic clamp intake boot, tank vent, worn impulse line, fuel line. 
Friend has 357 now local that has erratic carb symptoms too  even at idle.
