My gas tank started leaking and left a rather large area covered in gasoline. What is the best way to remove the gasoline from the ground? This is pavement.

I covered the stain in kitty litter and left it on for about an hour and removed most of it, but the stain still remains.

Try powdered laundry detergent. Sprinkle it on let it sit for an hour. Dampen it with hose. Scrub with a stiff brush and rinse it off.
