Had to run down a recently tarred and graveled road this weekend. Tried to roll slow but still got some black tar on the MC. Any ideas on how to clean it off?

The old turtle wax bug and tar remover is the best stuff out there that I have ever used. Just take your time wipe it on and let it sit for a bit then buff it off. Never failed me yet.

WD-40 seems to do the trick too. Wax when done.

+1 WD-40 will do it. :)

Oven cleaner.;) Also works great on overspray. Try a small spot and see what you think. I have only used on painted surfaces but gel should be tougher.

PS I would not leave it on overnight!

+3 for WD-40. It'll dissolve nearly anything off of paint/gelcoat. Just remember to clean with soap & water and apply wax afterwards.

As a side note, it also works wonders for taking bugs off your tower/speaker cans/lights, truck bumper, etc. :D

+4 on the WD-40. It will also take off any sticky residue from things like decals and bumper stickers. If the tar doesn't come off with the WD-40, a little gasoline on a rag will take care of it. As others have stated, wax after cleaning.
