Hi LPG is very dependent apon plugs and lead quality, the first thing to do is replace them both with new, it may very well cure the fault.

SOURCE: repair air flow meter
jjj8000: Your car uses what is called a "Hot wire air mass sensor"
This cylindrical black plastic component which has screens at both ends and an electrical connector with roughly 6 pins, is not a serviceable component. It has a set of wires inside of it which after the engine is shut off, gets to a temp over 1,000 degrees Fahrenheit to burn off residue collected on it during the time air has been passing over it. If I could repair this type of component in my shop, I would stand to make a lot of money! Unfortunately, it takes specialized testing equipment for the remanufacturing process. Not to mention the replacement components to put in to replace the ones needed to rebuild the cores.
I wish I could give you a better answer, but it's the only one I know. However, prior to condemning the air flow meter, make sure you have made the proper diagnosis. FALSE AIR problems are often diagnosed as air flow meters. Check and make sure the boots (hoses) which the attach the the air flow meter and go to the throttle body, have no tears or leaks. Make sure you have no split vacuum lines or hoses. Remember, the ECM determines the injector pulse width by the amount of air metered through that component. If any un-metered air that passes after the air flow meter, will create a situation of hesitation and stumbling, lean conditions and more. DO YOU HOMEWORK!"

yes you are refering to the same component (located close to the air filter and housing ). and from what little information you
discribe it is posible its faulty due to air filter not replaced often.
