I have had very good luck with the big yellow can of spray "Tuff Stuff" that you can find at just about every store! It was the only thing I found to get out fifth wheel grease out of cloth coverings on my seats in my semi that the mech's tracked in. Worth a try, follow the directions on the can!

Try Folex. Impressive stuff. It has removed every stain I've put it on so far. It's on Amazon.

Have you tried Oxyclean? It has worked well for me in the past.

I've had great luck on tough stains using oxyclean and a steam cleaner with an agitator. I usually rent one from the grocery store.

Waterless hand cleaner. I tracked in asphalt sealer from the door to the driver's seat. Got it all out with no discoloration of the carpet.

Spot shot is my go to but it's hard to find these days.

Biggest trick in cars is using brake cleaner if ithe material is color fast.

Soak and use paper towels to soak up grease.
