just wanted to ask if there is a quick deff answer to this before I start tinkering, apologies if it's been covered before but couldn't find it in a search.

V8 landy which looks as though its done 10 years on lpg is gutless and has ocasional missfire on petrol but runs fine with loads of power on lgp, any thoughts?

Stale petrol.
Carb needles worn due to moving 'dry' while LPG in use.
Carb floats or valves stuck due to lack of use.
Carb leaks due to dry gaskets.
Other 'ordinary' carb faults that won't show on lpg, like incorrect adjustment or split diaphragms.
Ignition timing messed with to suit lpg.
