I have this condition, where I perceive OEM parts as insufficient and in need of aftermarket replacement; maybe that mindset just stems from the domestic vehicles that I've owned.

someone told me oven cleaner over PM, I'm familiar with using that on degreasing metals but I'm worried it might bleach or etch the cement.

DM, I don't think the paint would stick to the oil spot. maybe I should just rubber coat the driveway.

unfortunately it's not sealed so I don't know that floor dry will help. I'll try the dancing tide technique though. maybe a detergent/floor dry/coke combo!!

I have found that there is no 1 solution for removing oil stains. I have tried many different ones and sometimes they work and sometimes they don't. The sooner you can get at it the better. This stuff works pretty good Clean Oil Stain, Driveway Oil Stain, Concrete Oil Stain Removal, Cleaning Oil Stain
