    How about removinig an oil stain from my drive.

    It's aircon oil which leaked when I broke the Ghia X for spares.

    High pressure steam cleaner will get rid of it :) The one we have cost a couple of grand but I'm sure you would be able to hire one for the day. Do the rest of the drive/garden too while you're there just in time for summer :)

    We have a tarmac drive, I do have a Karcher though. Anything I can use in conjunction with that?

    Cover it with saw dust for a week or so and then jet it off.

    The oil will possibly have weakened the tarmac, so pressure washing may well lift the stones..

    Most local council tips have oil disposal points

    :D

    They do a cleaning fluid and the drive cleaning attachment works great, used that on some minor spills :)
