Editorial Reviews

What caused America to go from being a leading exporter of oil to the world s largest importer? What are the economic and sociological forces that have contributed to that change and impede its solution? Gas Hole is an eye-opening documentary about the history of oil prices and sheds light on a secret that the big oil companies don t want you to know that there are viable and affordable alternatives to fuel! It also provides a detailed examination of our continued dependence on foreign oil and examines various potential solutions -- starting with claims of buried technology that dramatically improves gas mileage, to navigating bureaucratic governmental roadblocks, to evaluating different alternative fuels that are technologically available now, to questioning the American Consumers reluctance to embrace alternatives. Narrated by Peter Gallagher, hear from a wide range of opinions from representatives of the US Department of Energy Officials, Congressional leaders both Democrat and Republican, Alternative Fuel Producers, Alternative Fuel Consumers (including actor Joshua Jackson), Professors of Economics and Psychology and more. Anyone who buys gas should see this film!

This is a great film if you are a firm believer that Big Oil is conspiring to stop any vehicles other than gas guzzlers using petroleum derived fuels from ever getting on the road - by any means necessary, possibly not even ruling out assassination.

But the filmmakers have intolerable ignorance on issues like EROEI, the energy density of gasoline, basic economics, basic physics, how much land it would take (all arable land in the US, probably) to replace petro-diesel with biodiesel. They don't seem to know that 95% of hydrogen is made by using other fossil fuels (usually natural gas), splitting off the Hydrogen, and blowing the CO2 up the smokestack. Their suggested version of having a solar powered electrolysis unit with a compressor to store your H2 in tanks, doesn't mention what you're going to do with all the O2 floating around in your garage, nor do they mention that the catalytic material in the passive electron membrane fuel cell (AKA PEMFC, or just "fuel cell") is platinum, currently selling at ~$3000/oz. Nor do they mention it takes 1.7 volts to crack water to 2H2 & O2, and the PEMFC output will be just 0.7 volt when they are recombined, so you will need LOTS of them (which is why prototype hydrogen cars cost upwards of $1 million). Besides, it would be clearly a better use of your 1.7 volts to just charge a fully electric car rather than waste most of your electric energy cracking water and running the compressors for your tanks? Not to mention your PEMFC will wear out its catalytic material at something like 40,000 miles, and there you are having to spend anther million every 3 or 4 years to stay on the road!

A friend of mine has a Hydrogen powered Vet, he gets over 60mpg.
their are more advancements in computers and stereos, and video equipment.
The advancements in the increase of fuel milage are PATHETIC. wonder why?
Cars & Trucks today have more Power, more Torque, more Speed, but gas milage remains the same. wonder why?
If you wonder why, then watch this documentary as well as Gas Nation.
Then you will know why.

As my title states, I am the choir they are preaching to. I support any way we can have alternative energies, the elimination of dependence on imports of oil, more fuel efficient cars, etc. etc. etc. And yes, I believe that the oil companies haven't been forthcoming in their testimony and their millions in campaign contributions have swayed the debates. Ok, I've stated my creds. This is plainly a bad documentary and a bad DVD. Some of the other reviewers feel that to make this criticism means that we are shilling for the oil companies. Even our favorite actors make bad movies so it isn't a stretch that film makers conveying an important message can do so in a low quality and sophomoric way. After an hour of watching I had to walk to a different part of the room to just listen. Every interview and narration is peppered with snippets from old and irrelevant movies and cartoons. A voice says the word sweat and we are switched to a black and white scene of a guy sweating. Over and over and over again. That is one of the reasons that makes this unwatchable.

Other notes: 1. is this company serious with the 10 or so trailers before the actual movie starts?
2. On the opening sequence of the magic carburetor: perhaps there were devices invented 70 years ago that were bought and buried. I cannot comment on that. But let's face it. There are enough mechanics and engineers tinkering in their garages to have come up with these things if they were feasible. And there are enough venture capitalists with the muscle to stand up to big oil that would back such ventures.

I loved "Who Killed The Electric Car" and that's why Amazon recommended this for me. This however is basically armature-hour conspiracy nonsense that can be heard on Coast to Coast AM. OMG a miracle carburetor!

I watched this in a premiere. It cost me a lot more than the DVD would have cost. . .

The net effect is that it is a somewhat entertaining movie but you have to suspend your intellect in order to really enjoy it. There is a conspiratorial thread running through the movie and they have no idea just how impractical it would be to do what they think should be done.

To sum it up? It is a silly movie which pretends to be serious and wise. Don't waste your time or money.

An excellent EXPOSE' of the oil industry and their ruthless efforts to keep control of their money-making machine... at ANY cost!! A worthy investment for the topic which documents historical PROOF of gas engines getting up to 1,000 mpg... that's right!! And, that was in the 1940's!! Definitely worth a small investment... the doubters should see this. A MUST SEE and something worth sharing with others, too!
