I'm not sure what SP95 is, is that regular gas?

The SP95 is a gasoline in France. There is also the more refined SP98.I would like to switch to the E85 (ethanol) to pay less because with the FORD in France it costs me dear.Thank you Webmaster for answering me ;)

Look in your owners manual to see if it is E85 compatible.

In the US, E85 compatible cars have a badge on the back, and the fuel-filler is yellow and says something like "E85 compatible" on it.
Update: double-checked and the badge says "FlexFuel", and the filler neck says "E85/Gasoline".
