Try Coca Cola it cleans up blood on tarmac so it might work on oil

Oven cleaner works. Rinse it off after you are done and follow label cautions. Also cat litter or oil dry will get quite a bit off.

I have used "Carburetor Cleaner", on smooth surfaced concrete. For stubborn spots,or un-even areas, saturate an old wash cloth with the cleaner, place on top of the soil and top off with a brick, or two. Leave over night. VENTILATION IS IMPORTANT

Kitty litter is supposed to be good for absorbing oil from concrete and brick. Good luck and God bless you.

My neighbor has a concrete driveway and found that pouring some gasoline on the oil and scrubbing it has helped her to remove the oil. I myself never tried it so I am only passing along what I have heard. Hope it helps you out. Good Luck!

I just used Gunk concentrated powder on my concrete driveway minutes ago and I am more than happy with the results. The oil stain has lightened considerably and is not so noticeable. The oil spill was 24 hrs old.

Best product for this is called Eximo. My local Safeway Gas Station uses and sells this stuff - just a powder you sprinkle on the oil stains that makes them dissapear.
