Flubberdust. Yes, Flubberdust. Sprinkle it on a 16th deep over the spill. Wait a few weeks, sprinkle more if you have to. It works like a charm, and turns brown as it eats/soaks up the oil. Sweep it up. I have used it on 2 new stains, and it works like nothing else I've ever seen. I'm a convert for life. I believe it actually digests the oil. It removed about 90% of the old oil stains on my parking spot also.

I used Simple Green to clean an oil stain on asphalt. It worked pretty well. In fact, it may have worked too well because the part I cleaned was a lighter color than the surrounding area.

If everything you try fails, you might want to try oven cleaner.

Ayuh,... Stay away from any solvent based cleaners, asphalt ain't concrete,...

Dish soap, or mechanic's hand soap is plenty of power to clean asphalt,...
Brush it in, 'n flush the oil away from the asphalt,...
