I USE BRAKE CLEANER WITH PAPER TOWELS IMMEDIATELY. IT WETS UP AND RELEASES INTO THE PAPER. I LOVE MY DRIVEWAY, ALMOST AS MUCH AS MY TRUCK.

i've tried muriac acid, i've tried dish soap, i've tried purple power, i've tried brake cleaner, kitty littter, a torch, carb cleaner, drive way cleaner. noting worked on stains i've had in my drive way. they were a few years old and just getting bigger.
the best thing i have ever used, and the only thing that ever actually worked, was "pull it out" made by chomp

it works great, just pour it on spread with a broom if neccessary, wait untill it's dry then sweep it away with the stain. it's taken fresh to 8 year stains away with out a problem

i uses to use a product called Concrete Cleaner or Driveway Cleaner, bought it at HomeDepot. It cam in a little 16 oz jug, it was a concentrate, and it made 5gal. worked great. Havent looked since i moved out, but worked great. I just got a stiff push broom and and a light scrubing. My mom's drive way came out great, looked like new.

GET G-Clean 12 oz. Concrete Cleaner and Degreaser (6.97),

Latex-ite 1 qt. Powerwash Driveway Cleaner and Degreaser (this one is a power-wash bottle) (9.96)
the Latex-ite sounds like the one i have used, just updated.
Both at Home Depot

The best most economical , most effective cleaner for grease id Dawn detergent and a squirt bottle of water . It's great for your plumbing pipes especially your kitchen . Good old friendly advice from an old *** plumber . Oh , for the EPA people , it's safe for the duckies from oil slicks . Think about it
