WD40 and Goo Gone are two that work for tar. The best stuff is a bit expensive but is hands down recommended the most for both bugs and tar removal.

I’ve always used charcoal lighter fluid for removing tar from my cars. It’s pretty much just deodorized kerosene. It’s safer than gasoline and doesn’t hurt the finish. Just wash the cleaned surface well to remove the lighter fluid before waxing.

Kerosene or diesel fuel then wash with soap and water. All the advertised fluids have kerosene in it or filtered diesel fuel (kerosene).

It's tar. Water based isn't going to cut it.

I have discovered that prior to removing the tar to first use a "Plastic" razor blade and scrape off all that you can, then whatever solvent you use (I used WD-40) dampen a paper towel (or shop towel) with the solvent and focus only on the tar vs spraying the solvent on the vehicle. ~CA
