Default Why do my hydraulic valve lash adjusters click so bad?

I finally took the valve cover off because it is driving me to madness. I get a horrible clicking and only about 13mpg. I don't drive it too hard, but I'm also not limping it around. What am I missing?

Uh, busted lifter so you're effectively running on 3? Don't know whether that's it, but it'd explain low mpg and bad noises.
