Depends on the plane somewhat...but higher mixture percentage at low altitude and lower mixture settings for high altitude...the plane matters on where you do it. Some are also auto control on the mixture settings so its pointless on those aircraft.

When you are flying offline and have externals on look at your plane when up high... you will notice when your mix is too rich you will tend to smoke and run rough..(your engine will... http://ubbxforums.ubi.com/infopop/emoticons/icon_wink.gif) as you lean out the mix(bring the number down the engine will stop smoking and will run smoother.
