    One product I've heard mentioned a bunch of times that works really well is called Bulldogs Grease Away. Haven't used it myself though.

    Wouldn't ever recommend anything called "Bulldog"...Go Gators!

    'Degreeser' is available at The Depot or paint store. Pour it on, scrub it in repeatedly. If you think you have it all, wash it off with soap and water. It can go way down into the concrete, so you may need to repeat this but the concrete needs to be dry again before the degreeser can work. CP

    Hi Darryl, if the oil is new apply a some clay cat litter over the stain. Let it sit and absorb as much as possible. Sweep away and repeat a few times if it's saturated. Then apply a degreaser and pressure wash. You can also use a good cleaner degreaser from the automotive store and a stiff broom.
