    I am sure glad we don't have tar around here like that. We get occasional spots on ours here and there, so it sounds like a small thing of the Tarminator would last us a long time.

    Nice write up, I have something new to shop for now!

    Re: Tar Covered Subaru BRZ

    I have used Tarminator on bugs before but never full blown tar splat like you had there. It looks like it was a success for you and it was a great testament to the product. The back of my ford Explorer had embedded grit on the glass and paint. Power washing and car soap would not remove it. I sprayed the entire rear panel with Tarminator and the brown crap melted away.

    Re: Tar Covered Subaru BRZ

    Nice work and write up!

    The tar degreaser I use in the winter months is a kind of kerosene based product. Not so strong as straight kerosene. But it's developed to being able to work on wet surfeces. And get a gel like function when it touch the paint. It's to get as long dwell time as possible before evaporate or dry on the paint. In lower temperature it can dwell for up to 15-20 minutes. The amount of tar and rubber from tires I think it is you had on this car. Would need 2-4 applications to desolve it.

    Did you wipe it off or rinsed off with water after it had dwelled enough?

    Not water-based, so not rinsing with water at all.


    Tarminator: spray, dwell, wipe until removed.

    Kerosene: spray, dwell, wipe and wipe some more. spray, wipe. spray, wipe until removed.

    Then the chemical decon with CarPro.
    Once done, washed with foamy D11 Hyperwash soap to remove any residue.

    What in tarnation?

    I’m a little late, but I have never seen so much tar on a vehicle. Nice work!
