2006 is already E10 capable. After 2009 some Ford Expeditions are E85 capable, but there are not very many stations that sell E85. So what excatly did she put in the tank E10 or E85?

She put E85 in tank

So the only thing you can do is siphon out as much as you can, add a bottle of marine Stabil, and refill the tank. Then turn the key on for 3seconds then off for 5 seconds, do this a couple of times to try to clear the lines of the E85, then try to start it, it might cough and spit and will run a little rough for a little while but after that it should run properly, then on the next fill up add a bottle of Techron fuel additive.
