Storyline

Director Josh Tickell takes us along for his 11 year journey around the world to find solutions to America's addiction to oil. A shrinking economy, a failing auto industry, rampant unemployment, an out-of-control national debt, and an insatiable demand for energy weigh heavily on all of us. Fuel shows us the way out of the mess we're in by explaining how to replace every drop of oil we now use, while creating green jobs and keeping our money here at home. The film never dwells on the negative, but instead shows us the easy solutions already within our reach. Written by Rebecca Harrell

See FUEL! Change your life!
30 October 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

FUEL is a film about changing our future and making our world sustainable. "Fuel" does not only mean petroleum oil - it means everything that can create energy in our world. Everyone should see this film to learn the simple ways we can change the world and how we can (today) eliminate our dependence on foreign oil, and oil in general. FUEL is positive and uplifting; I left the movie feeling inspired and energized with ideas and solutions! Josh Tickell's story is moving and personal but it applies to all of us. He takes us around the world and gives us a taste of what is going on environmentally, and talks to celebrities who are creating change. He does a good job explaining biodiesel and how it can be economically efficient and beneficial - and seriously help America grow and self-sustain. And of course the Veggie Van is awesome! Josh actually drove across the country in this Winnebago using only used vegetable oil from fast food restaurants. FUEL is a must-see movie and is coming to us at a critical time in history - see it now! It will change your life!
