Old oil stained indoor concrete floor

I bought a house built in 1943. The garage was converted to a indoor room. I pulled out the gross carpet and intend to install tile. I found a oil stained, dirty floor. I don't know that I can do much to remove the oil.

What should I do prep this floor?

Welcome back, Greg.

Mechanical scarification is usually the only way to prepare a seriously contaminated concrete surface for tile.

My opinion; worth price charged.

Well, I don't know if I would call it seriously contaminated.
