I would think an activated charcoal filter would adsorb fuel oil vapours very
effectively. May have to let it work for a while, but a few kilos should clean
the whole house in short order. If you can place thin layers close to the most
affected areas, it should work wonders.

Subject: [Shop-talk] How to remove fuel oil smell?
What's a good way to remove the smell of home heating oil which has been
absorbed into soft furniture, etc? We have a unit which had a minor
fuel spill last summer, which wasn't completely cleaned up. The
residual vapors have permeated everywhere they can. I've tried
localized spraying with Fabreeze, Lysol spray, etc. Those sprays work
locally but aren't suitable for nuking the whole house.
