Dirt or sand if you can't get kitty litter. Dont pile it too thick, kinda shake a little over the area, then keep adding more.

mmmm... Pineapple cubes and SoBe Green Tea.

You may want to put down some baking soda first to suck up the smell.

seriously, if you dry most of it up with (i dont know what it is, not cat litter though) and thenthen tehre was a little left so we burned it. its no big deal guys.. gasoline on the floor isnt all that bad to burn up.. after about 3 minutes (more or less depending on the amount of gasoline) its done.

It still isn't a good idea to have a gasoline fire on the floor of your garage. It may not be a big deal to you, but it is still quite dangerous, even if you got lucky and nothing happened.

Just soak up as much as you can then open the garage and let it kinda air out if the smell is still there.

yeah, if you're gonna burn it off do so in a controlled environment, they tend to have a lot of smoke so tell your nieghbors.

soak most of it up with paper towels. then use brake parts cleaner to get rid of the excess oils left on the floor.

CAUTION: DO NOT DO THIS NEAR ANY SOURCE OF HEAT!
