I've always used mineral spirits since I keep it on hand. Although it will remove any wax.

Bug and tar remover would be my first choice as well.

Bugs and tar are easy, I'm not sure what is used in the bug and tar removers, but I'd start off with some mild solvents like wax and grease remover before I got up to mineral sprits. You really never know what is in that stuff!

Oil

Try some cooking oil, drop on the spot, let sit for a while then rub till it comes off with a microfiber cloth. Will not harm the paint. Rubbing alcohol is often recommended but can damage the paint/clear coat so would try that only as
a last resort.

Chain saw bar oil -
apply it liberally to the bar and cut the tree down.

Use mineral spirits or WD-40 to remove the sap

Wonder how creamy peanut butter would work? It works for many things and keeps the oil right on the spot you want to soften.

Pine. Sap Remover....

Thanks for the Comebacks.. Came across a YouTube Video, the Lad demonstrated 12 different possibilities, even some Name Brand Bug & Tar removers readily available at Canadian Tire and of course along with Peanut Butter & Mayonnaise.. 99% Proof Rubbing Alcohol did the trick with very little effort... Cheers Thanks.
