You will be missing a fair bit, most likely the following:
Tank, Pump and Lines,Regulator, Rail, Injectors,
and wiring may or may not be there for the above.
Most important is the ECU, I don't think an AU2 come out as factory Dual Fuel, so the ECU you have is likely to be gas only. Therefore you will need to convert to petrol only then install an after market controller for the gas. Last may be that the Gas tanks are now taking up residence where the petrol tank needs to go so that will also add to the expense.

Any reason for this, I would stick with dedicated gas, in fact my old EF V8 was gas only and I never had any problems travelling.

I had that fear when I got the V8 but it never was an issue, but then again it did have a 1300k range....

and also to ad to the AU for converting it back to duel fuel , you would need to get the std boot/sparewheel well welded back in as the dedicated gas model has a flat floor . way to much involved to duel fuel a dedicated body - sorry to say .

Yeah the entire rear floorpan in the boot was totally different ... not worth undertaking such a job ... it'll end up costing more than the car in the end.
