if it was an lpg tune he would have used a seperate o2 sensor up the exhaust not the factory one...
if its not running right take it back and tell the guy that tuned it its no good...

how did it get tuned using a narrowband sensor? Timing won't be out too far if at all, or otherwise it would have pinging, or not run. Get a decent gas tune done.

Yeah he should have been using a wideband sensor.
Take it somewhere else

Quote:
Narrowband oxygen sensors are extremely inprecise. They can't tell the computer the exact air/fuel ratio like wideband oxygen sensors. Technically narrowband oxygen sensors produce an exponential voltage signal, whereas wideband oxygen sensors produce a linear current signal. When the air/fuel ratio is perfectly balanced, a narrowband O2 sensor produces a signal of about 0.5 volts (500 millivolts). When the fuel mixture goes rich, even just a little bit, the O2 sensor's voltage output shoots up quickly to its maximum output of close to 0.9 volts. Conversely, when the fuel mixture goes lean, the sensor's output voltage drops to 0.1 volts.

Check your mixer, mine was leaking, tightened one bolt performance back and much better economy.
