Question oily areas in drive - thru

Hey guys i have several drive-thru i do every two weeks and had these for 2 yrs. Just picked up a fairly new chick-fil-a and they want to try and get back on top of there oily spots. What type of cleaners do ya'll use on oily spots to try and not make as a big eye sore. I know you can't remove oil spots from concrete but there has to be something better than what i use now. I am using F-18 from pressure tek . Thanks for helping in this matter

The stains are there,but you can put a little lipstick on the pig with clean crete.It's a powder that you apply to the concrete and brush out evenly.If I remember correctly it contains enzymes that will eat at the deep down oil stains.

I use caustic on the whole thing but you have to be careful with it and make sure its rinsed well , and do not leave it on asphalt !

I use 84 ounces of caustic soada beads per 6 gallons of water and x-jet it at 2:1 then clean with surface cleaner and hot water

Awesome results. When you say 2:1 what do you mean? I just leave my X-Jet wide open...
