Suggested Solution

Probably a heat shield on/over the exhaust or cat.
Annoying as all bloody hell.
Can be difficult to pin down but best option is when it's up in the air and checked from underneath.

Suggested Solution

If not above suggestion , could be " pinking " which can be caused by fuel but other causes too .
