Overall is did a good job cleaning. I used it to prep for the rustoleum rocksolid garage floor epoxy coating. I ended up having about 5 or six areas that still had a little greasey area after scrubbing and cleaning diligently. It caused the epoxy flooring to show some defects in those areas know as "fisheyes". Basically little holes in the epoxy covering where it would not coat the floor. The areas looked clean to the eye and had no obvious greasey look. If prepping for epoxy floor paint like the rocksolid kit, I recommend after cleaning and scrubbing with this kit, and after the acid etch, to re-wet the floor lightly and look for any areas were the water seems to form droplets or where the water seems to retract from a spot. Treat that spot for more degreasing and rinse super well.

Just used it today and followed the instructions to the letter! I actually did two applications of cleaner and scrubbed vigorously with a very stiff brush both times. Then I rinsed with my pressure washer. I expected the cleaner suds that were generated would be very dirty as it lifted the stain from the floor. Not so. Most of the suds were white. This product didn't affect the tire mark at all. It's still there in all it's glory.

Response from Rust-OleumSupportOct 30, 2019
Let's see what we can figure out Bill! The process that causes tires to leave black marks on your floor is called plasticizer migration. Plasticizers are a combination of polymer compounds and other chemicals that are used in the tire industry to create a more flexible tire. When a tire heats up from driving, these plasticizers relax and leach out of the tire. Generally the easiest way to remove these marks is to soak the area for a few minutes with a good cleaner like Rust-Oleum Cleaner Degreaser. After it has soaked use a semi stiff nylon brush to scrub the tire marks.

Great for general cleaning or concrete paint prep. To begin prepping to paint my garage floor with Rustoleum Concrete Paint (gray), I did a test area in my garage while I wait for some items to be removed, so that I could see, and show, results on trouble spots. My garage has no major oil spots but does have general stains, tape gunk, random stickers, paint spots and general dirt build up, so results were somewhat visible. The application instructions are right on the container and easy to follow. Just scrape off surface gunk, apply product for 20 minutes (undiluted), brush scrub, then rinse. I then used a floor squeegee to dry the floor. This product is not designed to clean major oil spots or alter the look of concrete. My garage still looks like raw concrete, but I noticed a substantial difference in the cleanliness of the surface that will obviously make paint adhesion stronger.
