The fishing line and hair dryer together will remove the emblem, but will leave part of the foam/adhesive. It may be impossible to completely remove it without leaving some marks, due to the fact that the tank is clear coated, and clear coat is a LOT softer and more easily damaged than the base (color) coat. Products like Goo Gone and Goof Off are good, as are WD-40 and lighter fluid. But none of them will take it right off. I suggest using WD-40, a hair dryer to keep the adhesive soft, and, of all things, half of a wooden clothespin, to slowly and carefully scrape it off. The soft wood soaked in WD-40 is less nlikely to scratch than anything else, and WD-40 does not evaporate, meaning once you get it off an area, it will not restick, as the area will be covered with WD-40. WD-40 also acts as a lubricant, and will help prevent scratching. Yes, I'm a big fan of the stuff.
