I thought I remember reading somewhere kitty litter was used to absorb the stains.

Nope. More than a few that claim they do/will but none really do.
The only real answer is acid.

Have you tried hand cleaner? Something like Go-Jo may do it.

Dawn soap and hot water may also take care of it.

I'm going to try things like that first, the word acid scares me a bit

When you use kitty litter, after it's absorbed the liquid and you've swept it up, you can put down a fresh layer and grind it into the concrete, then sweep it up and repeat. It may not get it all up but it will get a lot.

Try straight Simple Green.
Let it sit a few hours and rinse!

It's a garage floor. Grease adds character. Now, the pitting in my garage floor might be too much character, but hey, they probably said the same thing to Manuel Noriega, right?
