    I usually draw a bit of benzine/ gas from the tank of motorcycle for case like this. It melts the glue right away. Easy peasy.

    Naphtha
    Paint thinner
    Lighter fluid
    Gasoline
    Oil
    Goo gone
    WD 40

    Follow up any of these with alcohol and a soft cloth to remove any oily residue.

    Cooking oil is great for removing tape residue. Worked perfectly when I needed to get duck tape glue off my car. And it won't damage the finish.

    TS/OP -Many of the lighter fluids at a gas station are Naptha. Just buy one -just make sure it's not butane.

    also, regular Goo Gone is Naptha or a similar Petroleum Distillate with Citris additive.
