    Whats the best/easiest way to get lines of Lucas 15-40 off a driveway after it spilled out of an overflow tube on a steep driveway???

    Thanks in advance!!

    I can tell you how we did it years ago.
    Pour some sand with straight portland cement on the spill. Then rub it in with a 2X4.
    Of course it may not match if you have a white driveway.

    If you notice right away throw sand on it or wipe off with rags. The leftover stains can be somewhat removed by rubbing with wire brush or applying bleach.

    Get a can of carb cleaner, spray and blot it with a rag, it should would, I do it all the time to mine, but mine is a washed rock finish, it still should work...

    There is a product called "Pour-n-restore", you baically pour the product right on the stain and spread it out over the entire stain. Let it dry durring the day and once it has turned into a powder you can just vacuum it up
