15.5L/100km for a mixer system is actually VERY good!

On a EA - EL falcon maybe. It should be better than that on a BA, unless it's tune is poor or the driver has a heavy right boot.

The official consumption figure for a BA is 11.5L/100km. Multiply that by 1.3 (LPG consumption is 30% higher than petrol and you end up with a figure of around 15L/100km. In the real world, consumption may be lower or (more likely) higher than that, but the same rules apply. I know taxi driver who routinely use well over 20L/100km in urban traffic in their BA E-gas sedans.

Not too heavy - sometimes it is though - but generally if I floor it my car backfires and stalls - so I don't do that much.

Most of my driving is freeway driving cruising at 100 km/h
I could get more if I cruised at 90 km/h but then I'd be a traffic hazard here.
As it is doing the speed limit grates on lots of other driver's patience.

It shouldn't backfire & stall when you floor it, sounds like it's time for a set of plugs & leads, then a converter tune. Might get better mileage out of it too.

If your talking about the ba, it has spark plugs & a coil that sits right on each plug.
