This is a normal thing and nothing to worry about. Most electric fuel pumps make a whining noise. Some are louder than others and it is nothing to worry about unless you notice it getting much louder then normal.

My car keep on breaks alternator belts and it also makes this loud whistling noise. I've put on a new water pump, 3 alternators and several alternator belts

make sure that the pulleys of all the driven equipment are in alignment and not at a bit of an angle to the axis of the drive belt
To break belts something is not lined up properly or something is not turning freely

Noise whistling

hope this helped

Fuel Pump

A humming noise in the gas tank is usually a failing fuel pump.
The pump uses liquid gasoline to keep it cool and lubricated.

Car makes loud humming/whistling noise from under the rear by fuel tank/pump then car kills.

You describe a failing fuel pump. The fact he had it changed 3 times tells me the quality of the pumps was not great, or there is a problem with venting or something else.
If he did not change the fuel filter the pump would fail quickly. Since you changed the filter the next pump may last a long time.
A quality brand makes a big difference in this component.

When my car is running their is this whistling noise which comes from the gas tank. what can that be?

Hello albertdavido: My name is Roger and I will help you. The noise you hear should be the fuel pump running. If the noise is excessive i would suggest replacing the fuel filter. When the fuel is restricted the pump will be exceptionally noisy. Should you need further help lease just ask. Please rate the answer. Thank You for trusting and using Fix Ya .Roger

Whistle noise when starting cold car

its proberly what they call a secondary air intake pump - what this does is increase the air flow only on cold start up - the colder it is the longer it stays on - if the noise gets louder and you will notice - get it changed - we have the same problem over here on the vauxhall omega and corsa's - bless em got to be GM
