If its from the back drivers side it more than likely fuel pump cause fuel pump drivers side, fuel level sender unit passenger side near and under rear seat so get your head down to back drivers side next time back seat and you should hear it if its the pump but test it before you buy a new one if it is the pump to see if it is failing
