    Depends on the driveway surface. On concrete, product's like Gunk engine cleaner will work but don't use it on asphalt. It will dissolve asphalt. Simple Green should also work on concrete but I don't know about it's safety to asphalt.
    Gunk engine cleaner can be purchased at any auto parts store. Wal-Mart auto parts department has it.

    Coke does a pretty good job. Pour it on the stain, let it sit for about 20 min., hit it with a stiff scrub brush and wipe it up.

      A mechanic buddy showed it to me. The combination of carbonated water, phosphoric acid, and citric acid breaks down the oil and lifts it to the surface so it can be scrubbed and wiped away. Pretty cool!

    Wet the area, then scour with a stiff brush and a baking-soda-and-water paste. Use a garden hose to rinse it off, and let air-dry. If the dark marks remain, apply a strong household cleaner, such as concentrated laundry detergent. Leave on for a few minutes, scrub vigorously, and rinse well.
