I always used gasoline on a rag to remove! It's the cheapest by volume and I always have it on hand. Of course, I always used the gas to remove tar when I was going to wash the vehicle anyway and have never hurt my paint. ATMOF, even when using the gas to remove the tar and NOT washing the vehicle for a week, still didn't hurt the paint. smile

I use baby oil to remove tar from my trucks, we haul asphalt for a living. Also its the best hand degreaser i have found. It melts all oil based substances. Next time you get your hands really greasy try the baby oil...you will be amazed.

smile Indeed! I have also used WD40 or other similar spray lubes and they've worked wonderfully! Especially on baked on brake dust from aluminum wheels. That's another subject though!

Tarminator, cheap, designed to remove Tar, and works better than anything else I have tried except straight Xylene in certain situations.
