    VY LS1 swap / dual fuel car

    Hey guys. My car is a VY Berlina series II auto V6. I was wondering if it’s possible to convert to LS1 if the LS1 donor car is dual fuel. Do I have to convert my Berlina to dual fuel or can I just do the conversion while staying on just petrol? Any further advice would be appreciated too guys!
