Problem with old hardwood floor

Under my carpet is an old hardwood floor that I want to refinish. It appears to have oil or grease stains (darker than the regular wood) that I cannot get out. I've tried bleach, but it didn't work.

Other than trying a really dark stain, any suggestions?

You could try oven cleaner on the spots between papers when you sand. I have had some success with it, but stains don't always disappear completely.
