SOURCE: cutting straight
No blade is going to cut perfectly straight. You have to adjust your fence for drift. Using a test piece of wood maybe 10" with a flat edge and marked to the width you want to cut work it into the blade about half way then stop your blade. Mark the edge where you are going to put your fence with a pencil. It will never be 90 degrees to the blade. Good luck. I use a Delta bandsaw and I do not use a metal clamp fence. I made my own fence that way I can clamp it where I want. You can find plans online to build one yourself.

clean dust off the wheels, center the blade get it tracking and tension it so it has a medium high to (wide blade) high pitch (narrow blade) twang like a guitar sting when plucked with the saw turned off

You have two options, 1) increase the blade tension further, and 2) most the left guide block in closer to the blade. Overtightening the blade tension cause pull the wheels out of alignment, and cause blade drag, so keep this in mind. The guide blocks are also not designed to withstand lots of friction against the saw blade, nor is the saw blade going to tolerate much friction and heating up, so the guides should not be tightened snugly against the blade. Leave a small gap. Does this saw have guide blocks underneath the table as well? If so, adjust the left side block under the table.
Also, while cutting do not force the material into the blade. Apply just enough pressure to keep cutting, and let the blade set the pace. Band saw blades can wear rather quickly, so consider replacing the blade if the cute rate is getting very slow.
Has any of this helped at all?
