What is the best way to remove pine sap off painted surfaces and fiberglass roofs?

I have used Tarminator...available at most auto parts outfits. Works great on tar, sap, road grease...will not harm paint.

I agree with WD40. But the process isnt just spray it on and wipe it all off.

My experience is it has to be removed by several layer/applications.
- Spray it on. Wipe it off (only some comes off).
- Repeat the process and eventually it will all come off.

Same process with road-tar. Several layer/applications.

WD-40 or Goo Gone. Test on small area first.

Leave it alone until it dries and you can scrape it off with a fingernail.

If you have an oil jobber handy, they sometimes have Varsol. I keep a couple of gallons on hand all the time. It will remove pine tar, road oil and most other stuff and is safe on paint. Elstwise, WD-40.
