As the vehicle runs on LPG, the gas converter draws coolant from the system as well, so that tends to cool things down even more than on petrol. This is minor though. As above, it seems as if your thermostat is not hot enough. Not sure about Toyota, but Mitsubishi petrol engines thermostats start to open at 76.5 Deg C and are fully open at 90 Deg C. The GDI petrol engines are even higher - 82 - 95 Deg C.

Put a new thermostat in
Put a new rad cap on
Make sure coolant is full, bled properly and at the right concentration

If still have problem after doing all that report back and we can go further
