A few days ago, a family member left a nasty deposite, likely motor oil, on my girlfriends folks driveway. Does anyone have experience with a product/method for complete or almost complete removal? I’ve done some searching, seems like coka cola won’t do much good for this particular stain, degreasers seems to do better with scrubbing and  repetition. The house is part of a condo development, so seal coating to cover is not an option. 

Halp. (Fortunately, one of my Jalops was not the source of the oil, but huge brownie points to me if I solve their problem) Thanks in advance!

Years ago I ordered 5 yards of sand and had it dumped on my driveway. It sat with plastic over it for about a week while I moved parts of it to the appropriate places.  Amazingly enough it pulled massive amounts of oil stain out of the driveway. I don't know how much it takes but a few dollars for a 50lb bag of play sand might be worth a try.
