Several options are available. Check with Carlos at EBC, Andy Vickers at Dragon Juice and or Russ at Southside Equipment (shop.pressurewasherky.us/Degreasers_c102.htm) for his recommendation.

I also really like the Agent Clean Degreaser, Agent Blue. Paul at PWS sells it. You going to want hot water as well.

also, set expectations correctly with customer. you will likely never get all the oil spots out, but can lighten them considerably.

Saw a few videos of a trick to get oil out of concrete.

Pour a little gas on the spot and light.
The gas will act as a solvent for the oil and burn it off. Pretty impressive!

I wouldn't try the gas trick in that environment. 

You'll want to use BD-25 from Russ with hot water and a surface cleaner.  Sorry but I was driving before and didnt have the bd-25 info available at my finger tips.

Reclaim?

No I don't have to reclaim. I will be using hot water and a surface cleaner. The customer wants it done in sections due to they are a freight company. Thanks Ray for you input I did tell the customer I can't get everything out but will definitely make a huge difference.

 Saw it, tried it.... Works great on fresh oil, doesn't do crap on old, set in stains.  I hate to be the old crusty curmudgeon here, but in my humble experience I have found NOTHING to completely remove oil stains. I can remove oil, I can lighten the stains, but as far as 100% restoration, I've been unsuccessful. That being said, my customers are still happy with the results I provide. Mainly that's because I set the limits of expectation before the job ever begins.

I was joking about using it for real world cleaning but cool to know you tried it Ray!

On a side note,  I wonder if one was to use a heavy duty degreaser full strength with a scrubbing machine without water and let dwell for some time,  then hit wit hot water even heat up the degreaser  before dwell may make a difference. I'm sure nothing will ever be 100% with porous concrete.
