My gas is running rough on idle but is fine on petrol. Could it have something to do with the ignition?

Could be. The leads or plugs might be "good enough" for petrol but break down when handed the task of igniting the LPG. Need to know more about the situation before making suggestions.

Ignition lead insulation breakdown causing crossfire. Pop the bonnet at night in a dark area with no street lights etc and see if there are any blue flashes etc from the leads..
