    sorry...there's no way. Period. I have a concrete porch...spilled oil on it when hubby decided to put oil in the genertator on it. There is a huge stain..and it's been there for about 5 years now. hasn't is a fresh as the first day. I have tried EVERYTHING...evn left products on it for months !! Nothing. Now? The best I could do was cover it with a porch rug. Don't know how you could cover a paver though. Perhaps.eventually you can paint them?

    To get rid of an unsightly oil spot, just spray it with a generous amount of WD-40, blot with some paper towels, and then hose it down with water.

  • They have a product made to put on garage floors to absorb oil. Apply and let set. Follow up with a product called Super Clean - not the look alike stuff. I believe you can find both at Walmart in the automotive section. It may not take it all out but it will be a huge improvement. To avoided future problems they do make mats to put under your grill. Around here we use stall mats. They are larger (4' X 6'), cheaper and thicker. At Tractor Supply for about $40. They do have a smaller size too. Made from recycled rubber and clean reall well. 🌻

    If the cleaners don't work, I would pry the pavers out and flip them over.
