might be better off taking it to a detail shop, they can experiment with some different chemicals and use an extractor.. how much oil did you get in the seat?

Take the seat out dump DAWN dish detergent on it without mixing it with water, let it soak for about an hour, then pressure wash it. You may have to do it a few times but Dawn is really good for oil based cleanups. Dont get the scented crap, just plain straight DAWN. Dollar stores usually have them so stock up there

WOW! its gonna be deep in the foam. I wld try to remove the fabric, saturate with dawn, Palmolive works really well, and work it out the best you can.

well i know clinton knows his shit, but if it was mine id use a mixture of spic and span, las orange best and purple power with some dawn mixed in it, i use that to clean my rims, wheels and wheel wells, engine bay and under the truck, works great for cutting grease and oil, takes bout 5 minutes to soak in good enough to cut it with a water hose, but the longer it soaks the better it does

gonna have to pull the cover off. it's gonna be soaked deep into the foam as well. once you wash everything (just as clinton said) you will have to make sure the foam is completely dry. if you put it back together wet, it's gonna start smelling, etc.
