Petrol does work well, careful not to rub it in too much though.

I once reversed out of my garage over a can of carpet glue

It exploded and proceeded to cover the left side of my CLK with glue, it was a disaster. I quickly grabbed my can of fuel and started removing it all, then washed it off and polished it all straight back up, that was two years ago, it was good as new no damage or problems at all

I must admit when I opened the door it was a brown trouser moment for a bit though, thankfully none went on the soft top, that may have been another matter!

A cheap trick I've used is to put a tiny bit of Jif (Cif) cleaning cream on a cloth through a finger (so you can restrict where you rub to the scratch etc). Obviously you only rub it off GENTLY and if it works, apply some polish immediately.

It was more effective in the days before metallic paint because you rubbed a bit of the surrounding paint into the crack. But just like T-Cut, you should always go gently!

Media blasting should shift it. I know a man locally cleaned some cement mixer wheels for me. Lovely job. Shiney shiney.
