I would say you would run more gas with higher compression.

I bet it has something to do with his elevation compared to yours. (WA-CA)......assuming everything went good with the burn.

higer compression requires higer octane


higher boost (more air) reqires more fuel

...but higher compression makes more power and more power requires more fuel.

Mabey you have one of his older maps that isnt tuned in part throttle. I wouldnt think your fouling out your plugs at WOT. Try to throw some fresh plugs in and do one rip then shut it off and pull over right away then check them?
