      Product named: "Goof Off" is the best I've found. Be sure to keep it away from any bonded side moulding on the car, cuz it may dissolve the glue that holds them on as well.

        I had my car coated with tar when they seal coated a parking lot. The seal coating company provided me with a product called OIL FLOW. Worked like a charm. My wife uses it as a degreaser on my clothes when I have been working in the garage.
        Maybe check with your local seal coating companies and see if any have used Oil Flow or offer it for sale to the public.

            I've always used "Studebaker-Packard Road Oil & Tar Remover" on my Studebakers. I remember one year, when I was driving my '53 Starliner to South Bend, I was passed by a truck with a major fuel oil leak. My Starliner instantly looked like it had a flame job. Several cans of S-P road oil remover followed by a re-wax took care of everything on the lacquer.

              Kerosene or WD-40. (one of the few applications where WD-40 actually works well.)

                  When I was a kid working at a dealership, we used kerosene to remove tar. It was applied liberally to the dry surface. In a few minutes the tar had broken down. A wash job completed the task.
