You can use acid etch (2 times) and a pressure washer (steam cleaner is best) to get up the oils. I'd recommend an oil-based concrete stain, instead of epoxy. Epoxy only adheres to the surface (think: topcoat), but, the stain soaks into and bonds to the concrete (even over oil stains). Unfortunately, Sherwin Williams has discontinued what we used to use, as they continue to drop oil-based products. I need to look at some other brands, for a replacement.
