I've used a hair dryer on high heat, Goo Gone, or WD40. They all work great.

Be careful with heat guns, you can take paint right off if you get it too hot, goo stuff much safer and quite effective.

What a Fish story!

Myth: WD-40® contains fish oil.

Fact: Consumers have told us over the years that they have caught some of the biggest fish ever after protecting their fish hooks and lures with WD-40®. We believe this legend came from folks assuming that the product must contain fish oil since it appears to attract fish. Sorry Charlie®, it just ain’t so.

WD-40 Company has taken steps to respect and conserve the environment, and encourages its users to do the same. While WD-40® can be used to help protect fishing equipment from rust and corrosion, WD-40 Company does not recommend using WD-40® to attract fish.

The best sticker removal is a product called Contractor's Solvent. I managed 12 dealerships and had all kinds of occasions to remove stickers of all types and found that Contractor's Solvent worked the best out of all the others. They all work but this stuff works the best! It's also more pleasant in the odor dept and easier to clean up afterwords. You can get it at most better hardware stores and the big box stores.

Got a orange parking violation sticker on the window once and on the bottom in fine print it said to remove use rubbing alcohol. Worked great for me.

Have also used denatured alcohol.

Solvent for sticky stuff

If you need to remove a sticker, I would suggest a hair dryer and peeling the sticker while it's warm. I would not recommend a heat gun, because they're VERY hot and there's too much chance of damaging paint or underlying surface. For the sticky junk, I would recommend mineral spirits, lighter fluid (naptha) or Goo Gone. I normally use mineral spirits because it's relatively cheap and available at almost any hardware store; also fairly low-level odor. Lighter fluid usually has a strong odor. For either of those, remember that they're flammable! Goo Gone is good but generally is on the pricey side. For a few cases, the adhesive could be something that needs to be "cut" with alcohol (look at concentration and try fairly strong rubbing alcohol); if so, allow any hydrocarbon you've tried to dry first. Best of luck!
