SOURCE: fuel pump relay dropping out
Obvious solution might be to change the relay, however here's a suggestion. When you see the relay starting to fluctuate manually hold it in the closed position to see if car still cuts out. If it does you're more that likely looking at an ignition problem as the relay needs a signal from the ignition to let it know the engine is running. If it doesn't cut out try another relay first.
