    AG Intensive Tar Remover works for me. I'm sure there'll be other folks recommending other products.

    Lighter Petrol. Very cheap but very effective, apply to a cloth and wipe over tar spots, won't damage paintwork and doesn't leave traces as its pure petrol with no oils

    I also use Autoglym Intensive Tar Remover - good but pricey product.

    I may be wrong but surely if you use lighter fluid on the paintwork it will strip any wax coating off, meaning you'll need to give the area a quick polish afterwards?

    A thing I use on my waggon is called Leoclean its made from oranges and is a biodegradable eco friendly product.My waggon gets tar spots all over it working in the road surfacing area.You just spray it on and leave for 10 mins and the tar spots just run off.Then you just wash it off with water. It can only be bought direct from a firm called Colas as its there product.It cost around £3.75 for a 500ml Areosol or £24 for a 5ltr container.
