a sromburg carb has a float setting of 13/32 for av fuel (I can't rember the specific gavity right now) as the spec grav goes up the float setting goes down
So I am planning to run pemuim unleaded it has no alcohol and it has a spec gavity of 771.1 should I adjust to this spec? or ?
Any help would be great

There is quite a differance in the fuel level
13/32 for avgas at .710 and add 1/16 for fuel .745
I run both 100LL and Mogas in my Jodel with its Stromberg carb and notice no difference at all. It starts and runs exactly the same on either fuel.
