That all seems pretty reasonable. See if you would have any 'experimental'
results (or literature data) you could compare against. Otherwise, doing
ab-initio is the only sensible basis for adjusting these parameters

As it says in the manual, the gromacs forcefield (as well as the Gromos,
by the way), define only one potential for each rotatable bond.
