Try straight dish soap and a stiff bristled brush, and lots of elbow grease, and definently invest in a weed eater.

Citrus orange. Anyway, that is what road contruction crews use to get tar and such off of cars. It WILL remove the tire marks. Any parts store or hardware store should carry something close. Also, a gallon will last 5-10 years (unless you spill it). One dab of a rag in the container will clean a LARGE area. Use cloth though, paper towels don't seem to work well.

Good LucK!
