Default What pump to use with e85

Is anyone running aeromotive's eliminator pump with e85? I just opened my up the other day and some of the literature that came with the pump said it wasn't to be used with alcohol based fuel. Just curious if anyone did it anyway or what pump are you using?
Thanks

Well, I called aeromotive and they said there have been 3 updates to the eliminator pump. The current one flows 40% more than the original and is ok to use with E85. I just thought I'd post this info for anyone reading the thread.
