Diesel fuel out of concrete

My drain valve seals went bad on my fuel bowl, and I spilled approximately ten gallons of diesel down my road an in my driveway. My home owners assoc wants me to clean it up. I have no issue with that...im going to re coat my driveway concrete with the rustoleum sealer. The road im basically going to pressure wash and hope hope fur the best.

My question is what do I put on the road and in the driveway to take the oil out of it and allow me to put the sealer down?

What about the road? What chemical do I use that will take the stain out?

Id use some oil dry(cat litter) then put a bunch dawn soap and power wash the crap out of it. It will be pretty damn hard to get it all the way off but it may help enough for them to get them off your back. My apartment wanted me to clean up my fuel i spilt and i just spread cat litter and left it but of course they arent as anal as HOA

Spray 409 on it, let it sit for a bit, rinse, and repeat.

Do you have access to a hot washer/steam cleaner?

No I wish I did....

I'm gonna wait till tonight, pour dawn concentrated dish detergent on it, along with straight purple power and let it soak overnight while traffic is down. Maybe it will rain tomorrow and do the rinsing for me...lol

I think the worst thing about all of this is you lost 10 gallons of perfectly good fuel!
