There are several Ford vehicles that come from the factory ready to run E85, but unfortunately, the Escape is not one of them. Note that because of EPA regulations, making these changes will fail you on emissions testing, as they consider this a illegal modification to the factory system for on the road use. Running E85 on a non E85 engine can damage the engine without modifications to the tuning and injector size. Can be done, but legally no.

If the fuel lines are plastic or steel they are acceptable. All rubber must be an alcohol compatible, and most cars are from the mid 80's and up. But all components of the fuel system must be inspected.

No KIT is needed. Proper injector sizing and PCM tuning is required. But at best without a fuel sensor, the engine will be single fuel, not flex or dual fuel.

Regular gasoline can be used in an E85 vehicle, but E85 cannot be used in a vehicle that wasn't designed for it. Why? Bascially moving E85 creates a static charge, so the gas system needs to be mostly plastic to reduce the risk of sparking (plastic fittings, tubes, etc).
