thats not good sounds like thats on the fuel pump it self and depending on what kind of car you have it could be a real pain in the &%#

Does it stop doing it if the tank is full? If so then the fuel tank sender is starting to go bad, if not then there could be a problem with the gauge wiring or even the gauge itself. Either way not a simple fix.
