Filmmakers Joey Carey and JJ Beck make a cross-country road trip in a 1981 Mercedes-Benz powered by vegetable oil, meeting up with fellow "Greasecar" drivers, friends and critics along the way. Interviewees include Morgan Freeman, who is opening up a Biodiesel plant in Mississippi, political analyst Noam Chomsky, Tommy Chong, as well as founders of the four major vegetable oil conversion kit companies - Greasecar, Greasel, Neoteric and Frybrid - who discuss the reality of vegetable oil as a fuel.
