AFTA if you can find it....it's a upholstery cleaner that was a substitute for carbon tet.

I once had ATF blow out of a 63 T-Bird's convt. top system all over the inside of the topping......bad hose to a cylinder

Can you still get carbon tet? That stuff works good! I used it once (35
yrs ago?) to get oil stains out of auto cut pile carpeting, after a
slob technician put his oily shoes all over the floor our brand new
Saab 99.

non chlorinated brake cleaner is a close second....test a small area first


some newer brake cleaners are alcohol based....not so good on spots

Kind of hard to beat Dawn dishwashing liquid to clean oil out of things. Lot less toxic, fumes won't bother you. Your main problem is, the fluid has soaked in real deep and it will be pretty difficult to get it all out, but if you are real serious, pull the seat, soap and scrub it good and wet, then take the garden hose and blow water through it, let it drain, then take it inside to dry good before reinstalling it. Might have to wash the whole thing so you don't have a clean spot!

Sure!  What if it's on the front seat?

You unbolt the seat with four bolts, take it ouside, scrub it really good, hose it all the way through, let it drip dry, then take it inside to dry, then bolt it back in. There is nothing worse than thinking you have the oil/spot out, then you sit on it and next thing you know, oil all over the place trying to figure out how it got there. If cloth seats, it will haunt you for years before it is done completely if you don't do it right.
