3rd party PETG help!

Hi there!

I cant configure properly the new PETG filament. Here in Argentina we have several filaments companys, now I am trying this PETG that seems to be a good quality filament but as you can see the cylinders arent smootly, and it has a lot of string inside (not between pieces if I print more than one, and there is no leak on the nozzle).

I did several tests changing nozzle temps, filament multiplier and feed rate multiplier, but I cant find the right config.
Any advice?
Actually I have setted to:
Nozzle 1st: 250
Nozzle: 245
Bed 1st:70
Bed: 65
Ambient: 30
Filament Multiplier: 0.95
Feed rate Multiplier: 0.95
I tried CEL Default PETG configs, but none of them worked fine...
Any advice?

That looks like poor filament diameter control from the manufacturer, though I can't tell for certain. The first thing I recommend is to test with CEL or ColorFabb filament. If you get good results from those, you know it is the filament. 

If you get the same results, it will be a hardware issue, possibly the extruder wearing out.
