i drive a 1985 535i with a 5-spd

Recently my fuel pump relay has been acting up. Ill drive the car for about 20 minutes and then it stalls while im driving. Never stalls when im stopped. Its happened twice in the past 2 days. First while i was getting on the highway and then while i was getting off the next day. It seems to start right up after sitting for about an hour but never before that. my dad (previous owner) tells me that the fuel pump relay seems to go about once a year even though he only had the car for 2 years. Is there anything that could be causing this or is there even anything wrong with the relay? any help would be appriciated except for people telling me to go to the dealer cuz ill tell you what you can do with that!

my car blows
