How can I remove diesel fuel from my clothes?

Diesel Fuel Stain Removal from Clothing

To remove diesel fuel from clothing, first, place the stained areas facedown on paper towels. Apply dry-cleaning solvent to the back side of stain, replacing the paper towels frequently. Allow to dry, then rub in liquid detergent or dampen stain area with water and rub with bar soap or detergent paste. Rinse and launder. If any odor remains, add 1/2 cup of vinegar to the rinse cycle of you washer, as this should take out any remaining smell.

After I washed my pants that got diesel fuel on them several times in hot water with detergent, I used 1 c. vinegar in a sink of hot water and soaked them for an hour. They still stink.
