I don't know if paint thinner or Turpin Tine will work with Krylon Fusion but it's worth a try.

Gasoline would probably do it. Don't use much, you don't want any more soaking into your driveway than is absolutely required.
People underestimate the solvent power of gasoline...
Also, try Hoppes #9 gunpowder solvent (for cleaning guns, any sporting goods store that sells ammo will have it). That stuff is amazing, too.

Peace,
Pete Zaria.

And it makes your gas tank rust which leaves you with all this rusty goo at the bottom.

PS I can't believe mythbusters costs 100 bucks a season. I'm getting season 1 part one for xmas though.

But over a period of time it would build up on the fuel lines and restrict flow until it stops working.

But seriously just try some brake fluid its worthe a try,but im not sure how well it will work on the poures(sp) concrete surface.

Mean trick to do to some one is put about 5 liters of motor oil in there fuel tank and that baby will blow so much smoke you wouldnt believe.

Holy Sh*t stay on topic...

Anyway, to the original question at hand. I was confronted with having to solve this problem not out of angered parents, rather that my pyrotechnic batches were coming out off-white, as the concrete I was drying it upon was not clean in some places. Brushing, and spraying with the hose would not remove what seamed almost as dirt embedding itself within the concrete. So I tow over the pressure washer, and BAM the embedded dirt came out like magic. So there were some other stains, and I towed the washer over there and sprayed 'em. What you know, it came out!

So in essence, pressure might be the thing to try. No messing with chemicals, just high-pressure water.

I can't get ahold of a pressure washer
I'll try paint thinner

and if paint thinner doesn't work I'll buy some black spray paint....

Sand will work as long as your willing to shuffle your feet and grind it in. Yes it involves some work, but it will work.
