Yea, but if you don't want to die... I've had good success with Bug and Tar Remover by Turtle Wax.

Gas will damage the clearcoat.

I second the turtle wax bug and tar remover.

Go bug and tar remover it is amazing. After 2 months in the Jeep so much tar had built up on the bottom half that I would have swore it was black and white two tone. Took about half an hour and half a can but it cleaned it up nicely.

Tarminator by Stoner works well and says it is safe on clearcoat. Stoner also makes an amazing glass cleaner called invisible glass.

B&T remover removes wax also.

I use Turtle Wax brand in the black spray bottle. It'* best to apply wax after you use it.
