Storyline

The film tells the story of biodiesel, an alternative fuel for diesel engines. Made from vegetable oil, it is non-toxic, has low carbon dioxide emissions and can ultimately replace all liquid fuels used in the United States, thus freeing America's dependence on oil needed for gasoline.

A Must-See
23 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With Fields of Fuel, director Josh Tickell shows audiences that our fuel does not have to come from polluting oil refineries, but can come from your own kitchen. Not only does the movie explore America's oil addiction with unprecedented clarity, but it also educates the viewer on the scope of possibilities for the future. He highlights various energy issues, including biodiesel (and its clear distinction from ethanol), the importance of conservation as a "new fuel," and a host of other renewable energy sources in the varied mix of strategies we will need to replace petroleum. The film is not a plug for one fuel, but instead promotes a broader message of sustainability, and taking renewable energy into our own hands.

Fields of Fuel documents inspiring stories of celebrities and everyday people who have already embarked on America's clean energy future. Particularly enjoyable to watch is Josh depicting a home-made machine that turns used frying oil into fuel for a car, talking with Neil Young and Willie Nelson as they fill up their biodiesel tour buses, and visiting a plant where algae makes biodiesel that doubles in volume every day. You will enjoy every batch of renewable fuel Josh encounters across the country -- this engaging, award-winning film is a must-see.
