Flat spot on gas...

Hi all,
After cleaning the engine bay with high pressure water a few days ago, the car started to have a flat spot on accel. but only on LPG, petrol seems fine, does anyone know what I may have done if anything , it ran beautifully on gas and petrol beforehand...
Thanks in advance

Is there an adjustable jet/knob that the water pressure may have moved/rotated?

Was the motor hot or running when you hosed it? - if it was then you may have caused condensation to be formed inside your gas convertor/regulator. Maybe need to go to a gas centre to have them purge it. You could do it yourself except it is illegal to work on the gas system unless you are licenced.

Yeah the car was running when I cleaned it, thought that was the go , but by the sounds of it maybe not..
So if you put water on the gas unit when its hot , it forms condensation inside the unit itself??
Would this eventually dry out?? Or do I need to pay a guy to purge it..
A couple of times in the past 24 hrs while I have been driving it , it has come good then the next time I drive it it goes back to shit again..
Thanks for you reply
