You need to neutralize the smell as well as get rid of the stain. To neutralize the smell use seven cups of vinegar mixed with seven cups of water and one cup of baking soda. Once you have saturated the area with this solution, let it dry completely. It is easily washed away with the hose and the stain as well as odor should be gone.

How Do You Get Old Oil or Grease Stains Out of Concrete?
If you are like most people, your garage floor or driveway is made from concrete. With so many vehicles coming and going, there is likely to be one leaking oil at some point. If you have a concrete patio, it’s not uncommon to have grease spills from outdoor barbecues and grills. Grease and oil stains aren’t only unsightly, but they can be dangerous if there is any rainfall or water creating a slick surface. To remove grease from the surface of your concrete, use kitty litter to get rid of it. Kitty litter is incredibly absorbent and can be helpful in soaking up any grease or oil rather quickly. You need to let it stand for 1-2 hours before sweeping it up. If this method doesn’t work, you can also give oven cleaner a try. Oven cleaner comes with a potent odor and should only be used in well ventilated areas. You can scrub the stain after it sits on it for 10 minutes.
