    Have you tried a professional degreaser from an auto supply store such as Pep Boys (in the east) or Advance Auto Supply. If these suppliers are not in your area, call one in your town and ask what they recommend.

    Believe it or not I've used cheap powder automatic dishwasher detergent! Grab whatever at the dollar store.
    Rinse the area, sprinkle over the whole area, let dry with Sun is best . Rinse off. Good luck

    If there is excessive oil cover it with clay cat litter. This will soak up the oil and you can sweep it up and discard it rather than washing it into the soil or street drains.

    WD-40. Did a leaky oil pan leave a big ugly spot in the middle of your concrete driveway? To get rid of an unsightly oil spot, just spray it with a generous amount of WD-40 and then hose it down with water.

    Soda (Coca Cola). Here’s how to remove oil stains from concrete drive-ways and garage floors: Gather up a small bag of cat litter, a few cans of cola, a stiff bristle broom, bucket, laundry detergent, bleach, eye protection, and rubber gloves. Cover the stain with a thin layer of cat litter and brush it in. Sweep up the litter and pour cola to cover the area. Work the cola in with a bristle broom, and leave the cola for about twenty minutes. Mix 1/4 cup laundry detergent with 1/4 cup bleach in 1 gallon (3.7 liters) warm water and use it to mop up the mess.

    Oven Cleaner. Get those unsightly grease, oil, and transmission fluid stains off your concrete driveway or garage floor. Spray them with Easy Off No Fume Oven Cleaner in the BLUE can. Let it settle for 5-10 minutes, then scrub with a stiff brush and rinse it off with your garden hose at its highest pressure. Severe stains may require a second application.

    Kool-Aid. Nasty rust stains on your concrete? Mix unsweetened lemonade Kool-Aid with hot water. Scrub and the rust stain should come right out.

    Baking Soda. Salt and commercial ice-melt formulations can stain — or actually eat away — the concrete around your house. For an effective, but completely innocuous, way to melt the ice on your steps and walkways during those cold winter months, try sprinkling them with generous amounts of baking soda. Add some sand for improved traction.

    Ammonia. Tired of those annoying discolorations on your concrete work? To get rid of them, scrub with 1 cup ammonia diluted in 1 gallon (3.7 liters) water. Hose it down well when you’re done.

    POUR CAT LITER ON AREAS TO ABSORD AS MUCH OF THE OIL AS POSSIBLE.
    THEN SPRAY THE AREAS DOWN WITH "CRUD CUTTER" . HOSE OFF
    GOOD LUCK!
