I know ice takes it off of paint. Think it would work on a seat? LOL. You could always just scrub it for a while til it comes out.

Why are you the one asking the question haha but ive got this stuff in my garage cant think of the name right now but its for getting stains and junk out of interior, its an air sol can with a plastic brush on the end that you scrub with while your applying it. never tried it on gum but that brush is tough enough to take skin off your arm(ask me how i know haha) im sure it would work ill run out in a bit and check the name.

Paint thinner is the best tar remover, gum remover, anything remover. It's hardcore but works good. Just make sure you wash it off cause it can smell very chemichal.
