This is really a question for gmx-users, not developers.
We should add a point on the wiki for this. But short answer:
Decrease verlet-buffer-tolerance to a vaue you find acceptable for the 
energy drift (you should be using cutoff-scheme=verlet)
Increase the constraint accuracy, assuming you are using constraints and 
LINCS (and double precision), increase lincs-iter until you have 
sufficiently good energy conservation.
Other settings should not matter, if not chosen strangly.
