Cleaning oil stains on driveways

Does anyone have good advice how I can clean up oil stains in my driveway? I tried bleach and all kinds of cleaners from Home depot with no luck. Please help if you can. Thanks Stuart

Cleaning oil stains from concrete is easy: Rent a jackhammer, remove the driveway and pour a new one. It helps to get rid of the leaking car too.

The next best solution is to make a poultice of laundry detergent and cat litter (mix them dry and dampen just enough to make a ball). Smear that on the stain and cover with an old piece of carpet and keep moist for a couple of days. That will suck out as much of the stain as you are going to get.
