CarPro Tar X is safe, simple to use, and it works!

CarPro Tar X features what they call "glow color tracer." When Tar X is applied generously, it glows on dark or black cars. The visibility makes it easy to remove all of Tar X when rinsing. Tar X washes off easily with water.

CarPro Tar X can be used on virtually any surface. It has a high viscosity in order to cling longer to vehicle surfaces. Tar X is comprised of more than 60% active ingredients and the all-natural solvents are safe on paint. Do not leave it on the vehicle for more than 7-10 minutes.

CarPro Tar X is a heavy duty cleanser! In addition to bug, tar and adhesive removal, it makes an excellent parts and equipment cleaner.

When used on paint, CarPro Tar X reduces the need for intensive claying. It does the work for you! Just spray or brush it onto the desired area, let it dwell, agitate, and rinse. Tar X works quickly and leaves treated surfaces clean and degreased. Use CarPro Tar X to eliminate tar, asphalt, bugs, and more from all auto surfaces.


  1. Shake well. Spray Tar X on dry surface.
  2. Let Tar X react on surface for 1~2 min. or brush/agitate with sponge pad . (spray some TarX on the sponge as well)
  3. Rinse thoroughly with a power washer or flowing water.

On average, one full car cleaning takes 100ml -150ml of Tar X.

NOTE: Do not allow Tar X to dry on the surface. Avoid use on sensitive clear plastics like headlights and clear bras. To prevent possible damage, do NOT allow Tar X to dry on plastics. Avoid contact with acrylic and aftermarket acrylic paints as bleaching may occur.

Was looking for something stronger and better than the usual auto parts store products. My daughter had run over a section of road, that had fresh oil & gravel on it. Her jeep is white, which definitely didn't help the looks. The lower half, below the body side moldings was just covered. I ordered CarPro Tar X, in the hope it would do a better job. It did a fantastic job!! Very pleased, it did take a fair amount of time & effort. But it was worth it. I ended up having to use the whole bottle. I got virtually all of the oil/tar off. The key is NOT to let Tar X dry, before washing off. Seemed to be a short time period, between spraying it on, wiping the area & drying. Bottom line is that I HIGHLY recommend this product!!

Super product

spray it on and watch the road tar disappear. Took over major amounts on my white truck. Looked like the tar sprayer had pointed it directly at the passenger side. May take several applications if heavy tar but be patient. It works.
Easy to use and it works if you follow the dirrections

I Had My Doubts....

I had my doubts, but this stuff is great! I would not have believed it. I not only use it all over my pride & joy when necessary,but also on just about everything else that needs adhesives or "stuff" removed. I'll purchase it again!
Everything about it!

I have a need to remove tar particles from my car on a regular basis. I've used tar and bug remover but that is oil based and hard to clean up. The Tar X is different and can be rinsed off the vehicle and leaves no oil film behind. You can also use this product to pre-clean your vehicle before waxing as it will clean all the residue and film off of your vehicle similar to using clay bar.
Easy to use; non oil based
really none. The price may seem high but if this product it worth it.

Bad Batch or Doesn't Work
May 14, 2013
Firstly, the sprayer doesn't work, so I had to transfer the product to a new one. Secondly, the product separates immediately after shaking, allowing for 1 spray before requiring additional shaking. This in itself makes it a hassle to use over large areas. Lastly, it just didn't work. I tried it on fresh tar splatter on the side skirts of my Volvo and it didn't react or facilitate the removal of the contaminants. I've liked CarPro's products in the past, especially Reload and Iron X, but this one just failed. I hope that I just got a bad batch, but I won't be buying this product again.

Great product! Price is high but if you look at the product DoDo just released it looks to be a copy of TarX and costs much more. Full review is located here: http://www.autogeek.net/carpro-tar-x-600ml.html

Worked great to remove stubborn crud and tar from caked on dirt near the exhaust. I used the Iron-X first. Then followed with the Tar-X. Not cheap but well worth the cost. Awesome Solution! Makes washing the car much easier now.
