What do you use? Got a weeks worth of drips mostly on hood. Just did a cleaning and tried to remove spot with Goof Off without success.
Thanks all.

We've just been dealing with that ourselves. We Googled the question and either Turtle Wax Bug & Tar Remover or rubbing alcohol were the top two recommendations. I didn't have any Bug & Tar Remover (though have used it in the past) but had a liter of isopropyl alcohol. It works - but I had to use clean rags and keep going over the area(s) to get the last of it off.

Try using a wet dryer sheet, it took off the bugs and shined my chrome after a recent 2500 mile trip.

I've been using non-abrasive Goop hand cleaner. Dab some on the sap, let it sit, it softens it up - fingernail if needed - wipe off. Figure it's also taking my wax off the hood, so after sap removal, I re-wax the hood. On dry, old sap that has hardened, if you're really careful, you can use a razor blade style scraper. ST
