    It might burn off eventually, I'd be tempted just to get a piece of sand paper, wrap it round the pipe and sand it off.

    Spray some petrol on the outside of the exhaust, to get the plastic to burn more quickly (and more impressively...lol).

    Or reverse the car into an acid bath. Don't think it would do much for the paint work though.

    I was just looking at a fast, practical method of achieving the same goal although, it may cost you the back end of your car and your life if not careful.

    It is common to drive over plastic bags and the likes, also if you have been driving at night or overtaking it can end up being out of sight

    Cut off as much as you can
    The rest will just naturally burn off
    Equally once melting the final remains will drip off

    Plenty of suggestions above. Reminds me of a mate's wedding. I put a complete strip of blue tack round the pipe under the manifold, the filled all his air vents up with confetti.
    He got it all the way to the airport, went off on hiiis honeymoon, then forgot about it till the car warmed up on his way back home...... good job I was overseas when he got back.
