Its very hard to speculate. Could the noise you hear be an exhaust heat shield that has become detached from the exhaust, I just had this with a friends Altima it would only noise occasionally at first but then made noise more often. The fuel pump should only buzz lightly and should not be too noticeable unless some sound insulation is missing from the passenger compartment. I think Nissan even had a bulletin about the exhaust heat shields deteriorating they detach at the ends.

The heat shields are fixed.Its like a fast tapping noise in the fuel line and travels in the car you can also here it outside as well.
