Oil + Water
http://www.oilandwaterproject.org/

Despite being pulled over by curious police 26 times in Colombia, Seth Warren and Tyler Bradt's homemade biodisel vehicle (named Baby) manages to make it from Alaska to Argentina without using one drop of petroleum.

The boys, expert kayakers, split their road-trip time between tackling high-octane adventure sports and educating the public about biofuel.  The documentary follows Warren and Bradt on their adrenaline-heavy journey as they meet with curious schoolchildren, ambassadors, reporters, and Rastafarians, demonstrating how used cooking oil can be turned into fuel.
