No Petrol, No Diesel!

Film (Full Length) – 2009


Big business and a small, struggling rural support town are on a collision course in this good-natured comedy made on a shoestring budget with extensive community goodwill. Policeman, author and film director Stefen Harris reunites the cast from his debut The Waimate Conspiracy, but moves the action up SH1 to Temuka. An adaptation of his novel The Hydrosnipe, it features Mark Hadlow as an amoral corporate trouble-shooter threatening the town’s only petrol station after its recently deceased owner may have stumbled on a priceless scientific breakthrough.

No petrol, no jobs. No jobs, no blokes. No Blokes, no beer, no pub. Those bastards are killing this town.
– Stella (Janice Gray)
