Default engine/fuel question

I am running a OS 46 engine. It has a dozen flights on it and it has been running fine, I started out on 10% fuel and bought a field box that came with a gallon of 15% so I figured I'd use that. Anyway, engine starts fine, runs strong, I have the high end tuned pretty good. What's happening is after flying at half throttle for 15mins or so, I do some touch and goes and the go-around power is right there, no bogging. But when I land, within 30secs, sometimes quicker, as I add power to clear the runway it just dies. It didn't seem to do that on the 10% and that is the only thing that is different. Also, there seems to be excessive exhaust fuel down the side of the plane. Any thoughts on this?
