Painting over asphalt

Hi guys, i am Becki living in BC canada and i need to know where i can find a product called KlearKote.
When i google it all i get is autobody paint.I really want to paint over it but i understand asphalt is oil based. I have just bought a house and the garage and driveway are very stained with grease and oil spills. Any words of advice on how to get rid of them or on where i can find this clearkote product. I believe a user named justaframer talked about it in a forum.

Painting over asphalt

You'd use a driveway sealer
Burn off any stains that you can (with a large propane torch-and w/o setting anything on fire), then coat the driveway with sealer
