water and denatured alcohol 10%mixture in a spray bottle with a little liquid laundry soap will cut the oil and clean it up.

Also an iron like a Monokote iron will bring the oil to the surface, so you can wipe it off. Sounds wierd, but it works for me. Nothing like a car that smells like glow fuel inside. Really during a hot day.

Try some Simple Green full strength blotted on the oil spots.
