The idea for Green Vans sprung from a simple desire to save some money. Touring bands know that gas is is no light expense when playing towns on a daily basis that are 10 hours apart for months on end. Add in the unfortunate reality that most working bands are forced to criss-cross the nation in some pretty rag-tag vehicles that don’t get much to the gallon and you can start seeing the world through Reitz’s eyes.

Green Vans offers an economical and eco-conscious solution: diesel vans converted to run on vegetable oil. As a seasoned vet himself, Reitz understands how a tour works, so you can trust Green Vans to come through on their promise to plan out vegetable oil fill-ups for the duration of your rental utilizing a nationwide network of suppliers.
