Default Yellow stain removal from fuel seapage

What's the best way to remove a yellowish stain resulting from a small fuel seapage on the fiberglass? Boat is new and had a good coat of wax. Stained in less than a week.

Bleach didn't work. Looks like it worked itself into the clearcoat. Fortunately it's below the water line, but I'm gonna lose sleep!

Try FSR or Acetone, be careful with the acetone.
