You'll probably get better answers but were it mine: gas/oil = oil base. I'd pour alcohol over it, lightly scrubbing it, and vacuum it up with a powerful vacuum. Repeat 4-5 times. Then I'd pour baking soda all over it and let it sit on it a couple of days with the windows cracked or wide open as much as possible.

Last step for me would be: Vacuum up the baking soda then clean it with McGuire's carpet cleaner. Amazing stuff!!! Did an unbelievable job cleaning my carpet when I got the car. It even got old Coco-Cola off the head liner!!
