Anyone, would chlorine ... have left any particular type of residue on the car?
No, it's an element and a gas at atmospheric pressure. However, it is quite aggressive and in solution in water is a bleach so it might affect the paintwork near the discharge out let.
Maybe someone else can tell us more
Well, residual chlorine gas. You won't get that out unless you purge the tank with an inert (and
dry) gas very thoroughly.
