2006 Chrysler PT Cruiser - Paint help

Had some gasoline spill onto my car roof from a fuel canister. Having a great deal of difficulty getting the dried gas off the paint. Any suggestions? Thanks

It might have dissolved the clear coat. About all you can do without causing further damage is try a cleaner wax or polishing compound followed by wax. If the clear coat is gone, then it would need repainting.

Ok-thanks so much for the advice!
