Any strong solvent should remove tar. Kerosene/varsol works really well. Just smells real bad if you get it on you. Alcohol will also remove it, the rubbing kind, don't know if Jim Beam or Jack Daniels removes tar, but makes you not care anymore. Acetone/paint remover should do the trick too.

You can also try a sticker remover product ike "goo-gone". It's also probably not as toxic or harmful to paint or wax as acetone, lighter fluid, gasoline. Also, works great on removing bumper sticker glue and price tag glue off any surfaces. Most hardware stores have it as does Home Depot, Walmart, Target, etc.

How much tar do you have?
I use the alcohol from WalMart they sell as gasoline de-icer and plenty
of paper towels so I don't just smear the tar around.
The stuff in the blue bottle seems to work best & doesn't attack the liner.
Just don't let it stay on your paint for any length of time.
Acetone would probably take off your paint.
Good Luck

I've used bug and tar remover from Walmart in the past and it took the stuff clean off. You can get it at most auto shops too. Its also safer on your bedliner than acetone and other thinners i think.

I reccomend an oxyacetylene torch. it will remove the tar, and the offending metal as well:D
I think the proper tool would be a grinder. It would take that tar right off.
