Could be a faulty pump or its drawing air.

The fuel system has a pressure sensor and the pump should only come in when required - albeit on a very regular basis. With the engine off switch on the ignition - the pump should run for a few seconds and then stop once the pre-determined fuel pressure has been reached.
