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
After the film showed at Sundance, Josh had the funding he needed to do extensive editing and re-shooting to keep the film current, and to address changes in the alternative fuels climate. When "Fields of Fuel" became "Fuel", in its current form, the film addressed the controversies about biofuels, and added an animated section explaining the science and economics behind biofuels.

An entertaining and informative environmental movie with REAL solutions!
FUEL is a great movie for everyone who wants to do something about our environmental crisis but doesn't know where to begin. It is the most comprehensive movie I've seen that details how we got to where we are today in regards to how badly America is addicted to oil and how we can break the addiction. It is just packed with information! The one criticism most people have with environmental films is that they are doomsday outlooks and don't provide any solutions for what we can do. FUEL is NOT like that! It has a positive outlook and includes sooooo many different, new, and REAL solutions we can and should be working on right now in this country! FUEL is meaningful and informative and so engaging all at the same time. Everyone should see this movie to be more informed about what we should be asking for from our government in the ways of independence from oil. Go see this film and help change the world!
