Tardis is very good at removing tar and used by a lot of people on this forum.

Carchem product is great, however the smell is pretty strong (petrol / paraffin type smell). You can tell it's a serious chemical, but the performance is first rate. Stripped the glue I was working on at the weekend effortlessly with just a couple of squirts.

Also used TarX a lot (Carpro). Another great product. Better smelling (citrus based), but not quite as cost effective as the Carchem one, so I tend to pick and choose when I deploy it!

I reckon Tardis is hard to beat for performance and cost.
