    As 2k1 points out, gasoline will work, but I'd advise against it. Too much possibility for explosion. Use my hair dryer method. It's safer.
    I would use acetone over gasoline. Also you can get thicker and clear plastic, just look in the paint section of any hardware store.

    Ok, I'll bite.

    An alternative method is to use the spin of the earth. If you think that the earth is spinning, when you jump in the air the earth will rotate under you and you'll land in a different spot, so provided you want to go in a particular direction you can make the vehicle do tiny jumps and it might move along.

    Now if you think that sailing boats can actually sail into the wind using something called tacking, it should be possible to rotate with the spin of the earth using a similiar technique. By aligning the vehicle in the direction you want to go (like a sail) it will move forwards.
