Tappet / tapping / fluttering sound - 1.0 Ecoboost

Hi all,

I've had a look through similar topics, but can't seem to find any definitive answers.

I have what sounds like a tappety / fluttering sound from a 62 plate 1.0 Ecoboost.
The sound is particularly noticeable from a cold start for around 10 minutes, until the engine is up to temperature. It's only only noticeable under acceleration, and stops as soon as I take my foot off the accelerator. It isn't particularly noticeable at idle.

Oil level seems fine, I've used a tin of Wynn's hydraulic valve lifter treatment but to no avail.
Any ideas?

Found this. Not sure if it helps. Also some people are saying the tapping noise could be from the fuel pump/injectors:


B Max Titanium X 1.0 125 bhp in Magnetic with built in SatNav and rear sensors.
