Default BAD oil stains. How to remove them?

Ok guys, got a question for yah. My garage has some BAD oil stains. I had 3 gallons of old oil spill all over my floor. It had chance to sit there for almost a year (couldn't see it, don't ask) And then numerous spills from changing oil/transmission fluid, etc.

What is the BEST product to use when its in a garage and you really don't want to use alot of water but want SUPER clean cement. Trying to be nice to my wallet too, so help meh out!

Thanks!

i would pour some Castrol SuperClean concentrate on the floor and let it soak. I have never tried it, but I have seen what it can do to engine parts, and it is by far my favorite cleaning chemical.

Only $9.99 for a gallon jug

Not to threadjack, but has anyone had any success on asphalt? I've tried Purple Power on asphalt without any luck.

I'd love an answer to that myself; had the same results with purple power. :(

The company my dad and uncle work for came out with a product for that a few years ago. I love the name, it'* called Pour N' Restore. We call it **** Restore. I actually have used it, and it works great. It doesn't use water. Just pour it on the spots and let it sit for a while. It soaks up the stains and dries to a powder that you just sweep up.

I found it online at Proper Auto Care. I don't know if you can find it locally in Florida, but I know here we have it at Car Quest.
