Tar Removal

What does everyone else use to get tar of their vehicle. I have used the tar and bug removal spray, but that didnt work. It didnt even take any of it off. Any suggestions.

Bug and Tar Remover always worked for me. You can also try WD40. If that doesn't work, it may not be tar thats on there; it could be paint.
If all else fails, use a clay bar; that will get it off, if it's coming off at all.

WD-40 should do the trick. That stuff works wonderful on tar. Also there is a product from Stoner called.... "Tarminator." I've used it with good results.

If you have WD-40 spray it on and let it sit a few minutes. If should disolve the tar enough for you to wipe it off.

Thanks for all the info guys, ill try the wd40. I hate when they redo the streets especially in the summer cause the tar comes up off the street so easy and sticks to your ride.
