It is functioning as it should. The display is showing you your "Fuel Economy", and as you idle or otherwise sit still, you still burn gas, because the engine is still running, but not moving the car (or you, for that matter). Therefore, the numbers for litres increases the more stops and pauses you make. If you were to only keep the car around the house as an emergency generator, the computer would show you that it takes an infinite amount gas to go Anywhere, as you're not driving to put Kilometers on it....accordianman

How litres of lpg per ten kilometers for a Daewoo lanos


as lpg expands to around 200 times the liquid state it will be difficult to calculate as how you want it
the car has a liquid tank but the liquid is converted to gas in a converter on the manifold.
basically from experience an engine on lpg gets about 75% of the mileage as if it was on petrol for the same amount of lpg in litres
talk wit an accredited specialist automotive gas fitting shop and they may be able to give you a better idea
you can work it out by filling the lpg tank to shut off and setting the trip meter to zero and then when you have done say 100 klms refill the lpg tank to shut off and that will indicate how many litres were used in that 100 kilometers
