Look for alternate fingerings. On my old horn I would play Eb 23 and G 125. Those were the combinations that were relatively in tune. On faster passages, you can almost get by using the natural fingerings. Anything sustained, I used alternates. Most tubas will have the intonation tendencies you mentioned just because that's what the 5th and 6th partials do.
