One of my mates cars from work had the blue oval pinched from the tailgate on his EL wagon. What is the best way of removing the double sied tape left over on the tailgate - I thought maybe some hot water and a cloth and some elbow grease?

Hairdryer should work to heat up the glue on the tape and then you should be able to pry the big bits off with a credit card, NOTHING SHARP, then some elbow grease.

Prep Wash aka (Wax & Grease remover) actually specifies on the tin that it may be used for removing decals from the painted body surface
