Hi there,
LPG systems, including the Eco LPI, which I assume your Falcon has, are sensitive to running lean or rich, with usually the former resulting in backfire, even on a healthy ignition system.
Also, exhaust leaks, including EGR valve issues may result in backfire through introduction of oxygen to any residual unburnt LPG in the exhaust system.
It could be - an exhaust leak, faulty EGR valve or associated plumbing or even a control system or stepping motor (which governs LPG feed) fault. Any electronic & associated hardware issues should result in an error code, which I assume isn't apparent. You may also have a bad LPG injector, which also won't throw an error code.
I would be consulting an LPG specialist in your area - there's a few of the Eco LPI systems around now so the tech shouldn't be lost on them..
I hope this helps!
Cheers
Scott
