    Default Oil patch on driveway

    The monkeys in Vauxhall left some oil in the engine under tray thing following service.

    Drove up my new drive , its on an incline (Block paved) guess what, 5 small 2p size oil marks on my block paving.

    Tried Cillit Bang and White Spirit ... no success ...

    Any other tips on removal please

    if you have a compressor you could use a sand blaster.... or, lift the one or two blocks effected and turn them over(depending on type) or renew them
