Ok I've never tried to do a tab before! So here it goes.

I'm learning this metal piece for my grade 6. And there's a bit where it goes in semi quavers like this.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------
------------------------------------------------------------------------------ ......

And then the same on 4 and 7 and then up to 10 13 etc.

Should I palm mute the g string and alternate pick over 3 strings, or try and palm mute the high e as well and strum over 4? It seems I should do the latter but i'm finding it almost impossible to get a clean sound. And any tips to help clean this bit up?

Hey Man, you do the muting with your fretting hand index finger. Fret it so that your index finger is angled so that it touches the G-string lightly, and that will mute it.

Mute with your fretting hand. Just takes a finger tip, and string noise is no longer an issue.

Mute the 7th, 6th and 5th string with your palm, and the 5th string with the tip of your index finger as well, just in case. Mute the 3rd string with the tip of the finger that you use to fret the 2nd string. Mute the first string with the flesh of your fretting fingers.

Also, as for posting tabs: Just put CODE tags around them, like this.
