just get a cotton ball/ rack dipped in kerosene and apply on it. surely it will come out. i had done the same thing when the puncture guy had put oil paint on my tyre for identification. in my case it was yellow
Well, a lot of people here adviced brake fluid. And I one of its properties is that its corrosive to paints. Hence I thought of trying it first. But it didn't work! Btw, its not costly - the 100 ml bottle of KBX DOT 3 fluid cost me Rs. 28/- So wasted more time than money.

Kerosine is also used as thinner in some cases.
Right... I belive the MASS I go to uses diesel. But its very far. Will have to see if I can find a washing centre nearby.

My tyres had a red spray and it was also on the black body of the car it was error by the service centre chaps who had parked the car close to red car getting some touch up; they cleaned the same with paint thinner and its all gone.
