Default LPG KIT on Honda City!!!

Hi Team,
This is my first posting on the forum. I own an old type I Honda City 1.5 EXI, i have recently got a LPG kit fitted to it. The vehicle is running smooth and apparently there is no power loss in city driving also however on low RPM's the vehicle viberates a LOTTTTTT and also i am feeling that the ac is not as effective as it is on Petrol ( this can be my assumption). Also what should be a good milage to expect on LPG as i stricltly buy the gas from the petrol pump.
I am planning a long trip( 2000 Kms approx) so what all pre travelling check ups should I undergo?
If there are any members from INDORE can anybody suggest a good mechanic to handel my car as my mech says that the gas wala will tune and the gas wala says that it is a mech's job.

Is it idling fine in Petrol mode? If yes, you probably need to increase the idling rpm in LPG mode. I guess there will be a knob to increase and decrease the rpm in the LPG unit fitted in the engine bay.

You should be getting more than 12 kmpl for highway trips. In the city it will definitely go down.
@ dinu2506 : Can you please tell me where to find the knob for controlling the RPM in the LPG unit ? A pic would help !
