I have noticed similar with my cars. My car runs around 36-39 timing advancement.

Taking off too agressivly results in a lot more fule though, seems to be a fine line.

I normally take off 70-90% load according to my ultra gauge, my target typically is 70% in 1st and 2nd, then 3rd on up is 80%. If I need to get up to speed quicker, i don't let off the gas to extend the time in each gear while keeping the loads the same, upto 90%. Seems i'm only using 1/4 throttle to do this, the rest must be to just dump more fule??
