Try carb cleaner or brake clean. Spray it on and dab it with a clean rag. It will get cleaner with each blast.

If that doesn't work, simple green, or castrol's degreaser and a push broom work for me. Pour a little on the stain with a little water, scrub it with the push broom and hose it off. My explorer leaks oil and every now and then i have to clean the drivway off and then start over.

"Easy Off" (that oven cleaner) works great too. Just don't get it near the paint on your car! LOL

Learned first hand about ez off oven spray..Buddy of mine told me about it's effects on grease, annnnd paint. Used it on my valve cover(inline six). Took the oil/muck off ,and I sure as heck didnt need any of the paint removal spray..Good stuff on degreasing, just make sure the parts are away from the car. Thanks for the tips guys.
