I'm quite surprised people are reconmending TarX, I've tried the old and new version and both are really lacking in comparison to AF Oblitarate.

It seems that the fruit based ones are no where near as good as the chemical based ones like AF and tardis.

Tardis for big jobs... kills tar dead.

For smaller jobs better smelling and does the job at a slower rate is Valet Pro citrus tar and glue remover.

Glad it's not just me who thought this and it's rebranded variations was a bit 'meh'.

If it isn't heavy glue/tar, lighter fluid works well ..
White spirit also works really well too

Valet pro tar remover is the best I've used so far and I've tried a lot of brands

DJ SN Tar & Glue Remover and Tarmalade are citrus solvent based, very effective and smell very good, like oranges. I'm quite pleased with them, but haven't tried other tar removers yet.

One that doesn't get mentioned often is Obsession's Purge it hasn't got that strong chemical smell that you tend to associate with a tar and glue remover it's a lovely citrus smell but it's still as effective as those mentioned already
