    No, if left on too long, it can remove your paint, especially if you scrub it. To remove those bugs or dirt, scrub harder with a soft brush, or use a claybar.

    Goo gone will work, but rewash and wax the areas you use it in. Use a bug pad (like a wash pad) and lots of soap and water to remove bugs. Use a light polish to remove anything that won't wash off and rewax.

    Most work pretty well on tar, not so well on bugs unless you really work at it. You will still have to rewax any areas you use a bug 'n tar remover.
