What can I use to clean up diesel fuel?
You need special cleaners for that. I would ask a gas station and a janitorial supply company what they use.
Are you talking a few drops on a garage floor or in a big space? Indoor or outdoors? I would need a few more particulars to steer you in the best direction.
Hopefully you are asking about cleaning up a small spill.

My fuel oil (diesel) furnace leaked yesterday. I am trying to remove the smell from the house, but am having no luck. Does anyone know how to remove it or even lessen in?

Pour kitty litter on the oil to soak it up. Sweep that up and discard then sprinkle baking soda on the stain, which will sweeten the smell. The ones that are scented for kitty litter pans are the best for removing odors.
We just had a diesel spill in our basement, as well, there are two very good products we found. Industrial strength PUSH it is an enzyme eater and takes the smell away, as well as, Odorgon.
We purchased both products at a place in Canada called Kleen All.
