Lawn mower fuel stain on concrete

I've been looking through the How-to's on how to remove lawnmower fuel (mix of gasoline and oil) from a concrete porch. One How-to says to use either kitty litter or baking soda. Has anyone used this for such a clean-up? Or is there some other way that works?
Thanks for any help.

It's the oil that stained it not the gas. Pour some gasoline on it & cover it with dry seed absorbent. Even kitty litter works sometimes. Rub it into the stain with the back of a push broom. The longer is stays there the better. Sweep it in a day or two & your concrete will be clean.

I have also had good luck with strong grease cleaners and there are products made specifically for removing grease and oil from concrete. Try a search for "concrete degreaser" and you'll see lots of options.
