First be more careful when you fill gas that is just a given, second you can wet sand it down.

soft scrub cleaner with bleach, scrub till your arms fall off, then hit it with some mop and glo floor polish when you're done.

Mr Muscle multi-surface cleaner - spray on, leave it for a while, then wash off with damp cloth. Usually gets rid of most stains.

Armor All used to make a cleaner it was in a blue and white bottle, it wasnt the protectant stuff it said cleaner. I havent bought any in a while but it works good for me.I would spray it on and let it soak a bit and use a soft nylon brush and scrub the area and hose it off.

I would go to the auto parts store and get a spray bottle of a product called "Bleach white" that should do it....it has worked on everything I have used it on
