Currently using car chem and previously used tardis, have been pretty much on par with each other in my experience. Only difference I notice is the smell.

One thing to add about carchem is the trigger on the bottle is rubbish and doesn't stand up to the solvent nature of the product. Mine lasted a single application before it stopped working. You'd be best decanting into a stronger bottle with a decent chemical resistant spray head.

Used many tar and adhesive removers but always seem to go back to Tardis.

Currently have a bottle of Autoglym Tar remover which works well for me - just give it a bit of time to work and effortless.

Heard good things about AF stuff - might try it next. If Tardis was available in 500ml or 1L then might consider trying that, but 5L ...

Very possibly, but I wouldn't know if I'd got the genuine article (as never used before) or watered down, would prefer to buy from someone I knew that had it or in a smaller sealed container...

You can't water Tardis down, it's not water based...
