Josh Tickell's stirring, radical and multi-award winning FUEL may be known by some as the "little energy documentary," but in truth, it's a powerful portrait of America's overwhelming addiction to, and reliance on, oil. Having been born and raised in one of the USA's most oil producing regions, he saw first hand how the industry controls, deceives and damages the country, its people and the environment, and after one too many people he knew became sick, Tickell knew he just couldn't idly stand by any longer. He decided to make a film, focusing both on the knowledge and insight he discovered, but also giving hope that solutions are at reach. A 'regular guy' who felt he could make a difference, he spent 11 years making his movie, showing himself - and others - that an individual can indeed make a difference.

Record high oil prices, global warming, and an insatiable demand for energy: these issues will be the catalyst for heated debates and positive change for many years to come. 2008 Sundance award-winning film FUEL exposes shocking connections between the auto industry, the oil industry and the government, while exploring alternative energies such as solar, wind, electricity and non-food-based biofuels.
Josh Tickell and his Veggie Van take us on the road as we discover the pros and cons of biofuels, how America's addiction to oil is destroying the U.S. economy and how green energy can save us, but only if we act now.
