Charcoal lighter, diesel fuel, kerosene, WD-40, Go-Jo, mineral spirits/turpentine, Goof Off, enamel thinner, etc....

If the sap has hardened, apply any of the above products and allow them to soak and loosen it up.

Polishing compound found at your local supply house. Just make sure you get the right one You didn't say if it had clear coat or not. They make it special for it. If it has been on a long time some sap will eat right through the clear coat and if that's the case your SOL!

Yes, to all you said. I can only add that "paint
thinner" is the generic name for enamel reducer.
To a painter, "thinner" means lacquer thinner,
unless further defined. I once told a friend to
use paint thinner for tar removal on the lower
parts of his car with original factory paint. His
wife wouldn't let him.

As far as I know original factory paint would
stand up to even lacquer thinner. Of course, I
would not recommend that.

My apologies if I confused anyone. I call enamel thinner that thinner which is used to thin enamel (oil based) house paint as shown in the photo below:



DESCRIPTION
An ideal thinner for oil resinous paints, enamels and varnishes. Helps eliminate brush marks. Improves leveling and increases penetration of the coating. Cleans brushes and degreases tools.

•Cleans brushes, removes grease and oil from car engines and automobile parts
•Removes dirt and wax from floors and stains from carpet

The whole thing here is the time required for the solvent to penetrate. After my son left my wife's car parked under a pine tree I poured a little fuel on a shop cloth sitting on the pitch, and just left it for the afternoon.

You'll be amazed that regular butter will do better on pine sap than about anything. Never tried margarine, but butter does the job.
