WD40. Also, heat first with a hair dryer.

Just FYI...Goo Gone worked a charm!

Wetted the tape, let it settle then with firm pressure and a cloth it was not too hard to remove as it went all goeeeyy ...

Thanks brothers for your help ...

regular old lighter fluid works awesome and won't harm paint.

I had the same issue, and used Goo Gone. Was not worth the expense for that little bottle.
Goo Gone is good stuff, but WD-40 would have done the purpose, and been cheaper.

Goo gone has always worked for me in the past...
