    Aight..super hot girl that I just met a few days ago just called saying she got some tar/oil stuck on the underside of her car..guess the road was just recently paved. So I'm calling all of your infinite wisdom for how to quickly and easily remove this. Pics will be provided considering I can get them /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Liquid tire buffing solution, usually comes in qt squirt cans, used for cleaning the area of tire to be patched but works very well for getting tar off paint. You can get it at Carquest, Napa...... use carefully at first to make sure it doesnt discolor the paint and wash off with soap and water when finished /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Goop Remover works well. You can also use Tar/Tree sap remover....

    Most "Bug and Tar"remover is just a fancy can of kerosene or diesel fuel,at 4 times the price!.We sold a lot of "Prep-Sol"for that purpose,body shops used it to wash the car down before painting to remove silicone,wax,and dirt--Prep-Sol might dull some basecoat clearcoat paint though--try a hidden spot (like the door jambs)first.I just use diesel fuel since I have a diesel,makes good lighter fluid for the outdoor fireplace,and tent catepillar killer too. Most of the time I leave the tar on--it slows the spresd of rust down!. /forums/images/graemlins/crazy.gif

    A good cleaner wax will remove the tar. I use meguiars cleaner wax on my truck or turtle wax makes a rubbing compound. If you go rubbing compund, you will need to polish and wax the section after you are finished to protect the paint.

    try some mineral spirits, just make sure you wash with soap and water when done.

    If you have one, use a heat gun. It will come right off.
