get cheap brake cleaner from o'reiley's. My dad is a tech and thats what he uses. It pulls out the oil and evaporates, after it pulls it out, spray it off with a water hose. That will get most of it, but it will probably still take a pressure washer in the long run if it is set deep.

clean then, cover it up.

put a little sand over it and grind it in with your shoes after you brake cleaned it.,

This way will work - spray it directly on the oil - flood it - if it's not gone after it dries - do it again - it will work!

Powder clothes detergent ground in with your foot. Let it soak up the oil for a day or two then wash off.

I'll loan you my pressure washer for free.
use laundry soap and scrub with a push broom, then water blast it and be happy.
