If you are setting dry treated wood as posts in concrete in sandy soil , would painting the wood with oil paint make it last longer ?

Where would I get tar ?   The roofing patch stuff in gallon cans ?

If it’s anything like solid color stain it might just flake off as the wood expands and contracts.  I was always told to put some gravel down first and set the end in that so any moisture can get out.  Make sure the end is not covered in concrete, otherwise it may hold moisture.

Highly unlikely.
