My heart felt condolences for the state of your engine, did you get the LPG kit fitted from an authorized guy and if so catch hold of him, this is also the first instance where i have heard of something of this sort happening.cars on LPG run very well and some of friends in the office have clocked a lot more mileage than you have and their engines are healthy,somehow im not convinced that the LPG is the cause of this happening,when the oil rings fail then the car gives out smoke, the oil coming out of the airfilter shows back pressure in the engine and the only remedy would be a engine overhaul.

Better get it checked with some other mechanic.
Dont take any fast decision.

The problem seems to be mainly because of LPG kit. Get the Kit removed and check. Complete engine overhauling is not necessary at the moment.
Plz let us know the condition with out LPG.
