How do you clean oil spill up in driveway?

Cat litter is great for that. After the majority of the oil soaks up into the litter you scoop that up, then put a little more on the stain that will still be there. Grind the new dry kitty litter into the oil stain with your shoe until it looks like dust, then sweep that up. You may have to do that several times to get it all the way up. After all that, (I assume the driveway is cement) you can get it a little damp and put some laundry soap on it and scrub the spot. Eventually it will get most if not all of the oil up. Have fun!

Try Oileaters. It is a wonderful product.I have used it on my driveway concrete with wonderful more oil stains!

If that does not get the stain out completely, try Oil Gone Easy S-200, a new bioremediation product that literally eats the oil. I got good results.

Before you try a non greaser, put some kitty litter on it for a time to see if it absorbs it. I tried a new product called Oil Gone Easy S-200. It got rid of the stain in about a week. I liked it because I didn't have to clean anything up.

How much latex stain should you sand off before applying an oil base stain?

All of it. Otherwise the latex stain will seal the surface of the wood and the oil will not be able to penetrate into the wood. Sanding won't remove all of the residue. You'll want to use a paint stripper/stain remover too.
