    "For lingering odor after cleanup:
    • Pour fresh ground coffee right out of the can onto paper plates and leave them all where the oil smell is and by the next day the smell should be gone.
    • There are enzyme additives that can be added to the oil tank to eliminate or minimize odors. Contact the company that delivers your oil or services your tank for additional information. In addition there is a commercial product available called Odor Kill, contact your oil company for availability.
    If fuel oil spills are promptly and completely cleaned, residual odors should go away after several days. Call a professional cleaning service if you need help with the clean up, or if the fuel oil odors remain." https://www.disabled-world.com/assistivedevices/household/tips/heating-oil.php
