How do you get diesel Fuel stains off of concrete? (Just changed my engine)

Help! I am renting a place. I just changed my engine. I got Diesel fuel stains on the driveway. Oil I can deal with, I got all kinds of chemicals.
Why does Diesel leave a Black stain thats harder to clean than Oil?

if it's asphvalt the diesel melts the surface,only way I know is to top coat whole driveway not that hard to do.If it's cement seems like repeated use of a solvent would blend the stain in..........

not sure if this will work, but try TSP.

the stuff sold in grocery stores is no longer legitimate tri-sodium phosphate (TSP). however, you can find the real stuff at Home Depot.
