2013 LX with 152K miles.

Recently my fuel gauge will drop to E with a blinking fuel light when I start it up. Usually goes back up to the level I expect after a few minutes but lately it's been happening more frequently. Looks like a fuel sensor level to me, but wanted to get some opinions.
Looking at Rock Auto they have the SPECTRA PREMIUM SP3037M Fuel Pump & Housing Assembly which looks like is what I need along with a new fuel filter. No codes, runs great, just the fuel gauge going wonky from time to time.
Anything else I should check? Have experience with other assemblies they would recommend over the Spectra?

Thanks in advance,

Funny, I'm having this issue in my 14 SX-T. It's been very inconsistent, though I do find that depending on the grade I'm on, the reading is somewhat more consistent and available. I'm guessing it's just the sensor somehow, as I notice no performance issues with my car.
