E85 on stock fuel pump

alright so I have decided to run E85 in my car instead of trying to fill up with 2 gallons of 110 and 10 of 93... but I would like to know... will my stock fuel pump handle running E85 for a few months until I can afford to buy a new Walboro, or Do I even need to get another fuel pump?

Going out on a limb here--but I would say that you definetly need a new pump, injectors, and tune before you even think about running E-85. E-85 has a higher octane rating, but it has less enegry per gallon compared to regular unleaded---so you need more of it to go the same distance. I think it was MM&FF that did an article not that long ago about converting to E-85---I'd start there.
