    One of the best ways to deal with tar is to get a clay bar.

    I use either a petrol soaked rag, but then have to re-wax or polish the area, otherwise clay works a treat, but then again have to re-wax or polish again afterwards...

    Quite skilled now, serves me right for having a white car (The Fiat)

    For a minute I thought you were going to say I use a petrol soaked rag and set it alight ....then again, all for the better

    I always use a little white spirit/turps, gently, on a very soft rag. Petrol would work equally well. Needs a HOT wash and wax straight after.
