fuel pump ticking?

I irregularly get a ticking noise coming from somewhere behind me... it goes away when I stop, and when I accelerate hard. It happens mostly under gentle acceleration. It's not particularly loud and is independent of speed.

I have read under other threads of problems with the fuel pump. Does this sound like what it is? Will the fuel pump die? should I get a part to replace it now?

I get the same in my Spider. Had it (with no change) since I got it, over a year ago.

Only difference I get from you is that speed of the ticks increases when I'm stationary with my foot on the brake pedal - it certainly seems to be coming from the same area, but could be from a different source I guess.

It is probably not the fuel pump you hear, but the fuel vapour solenoid valve opening and closing, and it is perfectly normal.
