Hillyard carries a product called liquid gum go that will remove tar and chewing gum, etc from carpets

or you can follow these directions

TIPS FOR REMOVING ASPHALT & TAR: Stains caused by tar and similar substances as road oil, axle grease, asphalt, and pitch are similar and certian solvents are effective for them all. However, they are not easily removed, especially from cotton or other natural fabrics. Scrape off as much of the substance as possible, then follow the directions for "Greassy Stains." If traces remain, sponge with turpentine.
When wiping use a light, upward, brushing motion so that the stain will be rubbed out of the rug rather than into it. Change your cloth when it becomes soiled and continue until the stain is gone.

The tips from the others are very good :thumbup:eek:nes. Another that I use is any of the citrus gum removers by esteam or prochem. Looks like sun tan lotion, works great.;)
