Hello
I have a stubborn tranmission fluid spot on the pavement in front of
the house.I tried water and washing soap but
unfortunately it helped very little if any so I spilled some gasoline
and scrubbed with a plastic brush.
It only made things worse -now spot is gone but the
area I scrubbed is darker though if you scratch it with razor a bit it
appears cean underneath the black tar(gsoline dissolved asphalt?)
Is there a way to remove it- I read people suggesting Amway concrete
cleaner , plain cement powder, wood seal etc?
thanks

The sun and time will match the spot up. By then you may spill more
anyway. If its your property and not the public street, maybe it's time
for resealing.

Gasoline mixes with asphalt but will eventually dry out again.
