This vehicle oil stain is, of course, in our paved driveway. Any ideas on how to get rid of it?

    Pour gasoline on it and then cat litter to absorb it . Might take a couple of times.

    Try Lestoil, eats the grease. Also works great on stains on clothes.

    Maybe Dawn dish soap and a good scrub. Dawn cuts grease/oil and is environmentally friendly. However, I've never tried it on a driveway, but I know it works for other things. Good luck.

    Pure Blue Dawn rub directly on spot, thickly!!!! let rest under plastic bag, go back in one hour scub around, re cover area and add more if you need. Do this three times then powerwash....... Works for me.

    Try the paste that removes oily residues from hands (used in car repair works, you can find it in shops where car spare parts / tools are sold), just spread it over the stain, leave for a couple of hours then powerwash it, might help

    I am so grateful for all the advice I have been given. I haven't tried any of them yet due to illness in the family. When all that clears up, I'm going to try every suggestion. Thank-you ever one. I'll let you know the results.

    also use kitty litter, it sucks up the oil and then use dawn soap ad baking soda,, works good
