SYNOPSIS

Picture a cross-country road trip powered by vegetable oil in a 1981 Mercedes-Benz. GREASY RIDER follows the two filmmakers, Joey Carey and JJ Beck, as they meet with fellow Greasecar drivers, friends, and critics. Traveling as far south as New Orleans and as far north as Seattle, the car is fueled by used cooking grease collected at restaurants along the way.

The film includes interviews with Morgan Freeman, Noam Chomsky, Yoko Ono, and Tommy Chong, as well as interviews with the founders of the four major vegetable oil conversion kit companies – Greasecar, Greasel, Neoteric, and Frybrid.
