Gas and lacquer thinner would both work better as a tar solvent but they are both quite flammable and will evaporate before the tar is soft. Paint thinner is a good alternative solvent. A soaked rag will stay wet a long time giving more exposure of the solvent to the tar and over night, it should totally penetrate and soften the coating.
