SVP is special vehicle preparation - it is adaptions made for emergency services like police and paramedics etc.  

The 91 octane just refers to the lowest octane you can use in the car.  In the UK the lowest available is 95RON but I don't know if that's different in Egypt or not.

I'm not sure whether the cooling pack is for the engine or the AC, but it will either be a larger radiator, intercooler or condenser.  @iantt may know!

Global Octane Market Continues to Be Dominated by Regular Gasoline Grades

Stratas Advisors

This excerpt is from a report that is available to subscribers of Stratas Advisors’ Global Fuel Specifications service.

 

Current gasoline octane grades range widely from RON 80 to RON 100, or AKI 81 to 91, in the Americas. Several countries have two or more grades available on their markets while countries such as Ireland (RON 95), Italy (RON 95) and several African countries have only one gasoline grade. China has the highest number of gasoline grades in its market with seven grades that are available depending on the city or province, followed by Kazakhstan and Peru having five gasoline grades. In addition, countries such as Belarus, Egypt, Iraq, Kyrgyzstan, Paraguay, Philippines and Russia have as many as four gasoline grades available.

thank you very much for this great clarification , yes in the past we had 80 , 90 , 92, and 95 RON , but currently we have only 80 RON in very limited number of stations found in countryside areas, 92 RON and 95 RON which are very common in almost every station, but for the 91 octane level gasoline mentioned on this ford etis website , do they mean 91 RON ? or 91 AKI which is 95 RON ? or they care to write the octane rating as country specific. thank you for this great help and considering

Just use 95 or better (regardless of AKI or RON) and you'll be probably fine. The number refers to the worst type of fuel it was designed for, so if you use that or better there'll be no problem as long as you aren't dumping race fuel in a regular car. 

The number is most likely RON, not AKI. I've never seen anyone refer to octane as AKI here in the UK and I'm fairly sure it's the same in the US. With those being fords two primary markets, I highly doubt the number is AKI. 

If you check your fuel cap there might be a note of what you should use there.

thank you for your reply , I guess I'll stick to the 95 RON which is the highest available here in Egypt , I'm using Total excellium 95 , we have also Mobil super plus 95 but I prefer Total 🙂
