Default gear oil in carpet

I folded my rear seats down an unknowingly crushed a bottle of gear oil. There is a nice puddle soaked into my carpet behind my drivers seat. Any suggestions on how to remove the oil??

Simple Green and a carpet shampoo'er. Preferrably one with a powered head on it. I have a Bissel little green machine that I use for cleaning the carpets in my vehicles. Works great, but wish I had a powered head on it for some of the dug in stuff.

Is gear oil too thick for the kitty litter trick to wick the oil part out of the carpet?

Simple green, or you can dilute some greased lightning and scrub into it.

To safely clean carpet, its a 1-10 ratio. 1 part GL, 10 parts water.
