Motor oil, brake fluid, and gasoline spills are more visible on concrete than asphalt but it’s still very important to promptly clean them off both types of driveways to prevent serious stains. there is also the matter of auto-related oils and solvents can interact with asphalt’s petroleum base so that it deteriorates and softens.No matter what driveway you have , first soak up as much of the fresh spill as possible with an absorbent product eg: Kitty Litter.
Let the excess spillage be absorbed for a few hours, then scoop up the litter and sweep the area. To remove the rest of the spill, there are a few techniques that can be used, if you are working with asphalt spray a biodegradable oven cleaning product on the affected area. Let that sit for 30 minutes then wash away with a garden hose. If you are working with concrete Mix enough of a powered moisture-absorbant product into the liquid TSP to create a thick paste. this must be spread over the affected area. After 30 mintues use a putty knife to clean off the paste and then spray with a hose.
