Lately my car has been being a bit of a butthole. Dual fuel 1.6 carby '85 Ford Meteor. My issue is that when I am driving it on unleaded, drives like a dream. Idles at around 750 rpm sitting at the lights and have no issues whatsoever.

However while on LPG, it refuses to idle at 750. Sits there for about 2 or 3 seconds then drops to 500 or until the engine dies. Today I checked the oil, and motor oil was low so I topped that off. Anyway since the top off it sits at around 750 for a little while (maybe a minute or so) and then drops back down to 500 and struggles there until finally engine dies.

Only happens on LPG :S

This has been occuring since a fill-up a few weeks ago. I changed petrol stations assuming it was just a bad batch of gas but after being to 6 different stations, same stuff occurs.

Any ideas what this might be? Thanks!
