•The sensitivity of PCF-LPG as function of external conditions was examined.•PCF can produce numerous modes, including cladding modes with ultra-sensitive coupling.•The maximum or minimum sensitivity for the PCF is determined by cladding mode dispersion.•Two parameter sensing can be achieved with PCF-LPG.
