I have used it with good results but, regular tar remover seems to work better. I always rewax after. Ed

It will work but Stoner's Tarminator is a far superior product.

A good wax job is the first defense against tar sticking.

I used to daub cheap wax (Nu Finish) on my Mom's light grey Ford Taurus so cow manure wouldn't stick. That stuff splatters like crazy--the manure not the wax.

Auto Finesse makes 2 very good products to get rid of road tar: I think one of them is called AF Citrus, which is a great pre-wash spry to loosen caked on dirt before a wash or a rinseless wash;

I have forgotten the name of the other product which is much stronger.

I think a quality Bug & Tar Remover product would be a better option.
