After a year riddled with automotive disaster, Chris and his band are in need of a touring vehicle to keep them on the road. They want to do it right. They want to tour green, and they need your help.
What we need:
A safe, large diesel vehicle
An extra tank for vegetable oil
A fuel line and filter system
An external pump to transfer vegetable oil into our tank
What we will do:
We will purchase a large diesel vehicle. We‘ll tune it up. We will install an extra vegetable oil tank, and a separate fuel line, filter system, and pump to convert it to run off vegetable oil. We will tour till the proverbial wheels fall off.
How much are you going to need to do that?
What are the benefits of a Vegetable Oil fueled Vehicle?
Touring bands burn a lot of gas. Chris alone this year has needed over 700 gallons this year for touring. Waste vegetable oil powered vehicles still require a small amount of diesel to operate, but significantly less. Gas is Chris' biggest expense on the road. So decreasing the overhead for touring means a more reasonable wage for him and his band, a more sustainable career, and the ability to fund other projects like recording, creative packaging, and an overall higher quality of life on the road.
Environmentally speaking, using a waste vegetable oil powered vehicle has a significant impact. It decreases Chris and his band's dependency on foreign oil, it has fewer polluting emissions, and uses what was to be trash as fuel.
All of these factors play into a safe happy touring band with a softer impact on the environment. That’s our goal, but we need your help.
So take a look at some of the incentives we’ve listed below. Many items here are exclusive to this Kickstarter campaign, others are one of kind, all are offered with great appreciation. Thanks for reading, listening and helping us reach our fans in a sustainable way.
