probably running too rich.. as it shouldnt be that noticeable when cold

hell i was getting better than that in my old eb. and i never tuned it after i cammed it as i wrote the eb off the week before it was going to get done lol

who tuned it?
try speaking to the tuner and see what gets said..

also what sort of lpg mixer and converter do you have?

Running WAY rich.

You need to raise the concern with the people that tuned it. Be polite.
If you are aggressive they will not want to help you.

Map sensor unplugged? That will result in running rich & the poor fuel consumption. !

On petrol yes. On LPG it will make it run leaner.

An excessively lean mixture will result in high fuel consumption as well. Not just an excessively rich one.
Unplugged vac hose to the MAP will also greatly effect ignition timing which will effect fuel consumption on both fuels.
