In July this year we set off on a short but eventful first time trip to Japan. Fuel Magazine issue 18 ‘The Japan Issue’ is the results from that trip packed in to the usual 144 thick, glossy pages. We were on the ground for no more than 4 1/2 days, but in that time we saw some great things and met some fascinating people.
We covered hot rods, customs, bikes, Japanese cars and events.
Some of what happened was planned, some things just happened as the trip rolled out. All in all it was an incredible experience, and we hope that you enjoy indulging in our exploits. The issue is now available through our online shop and in newsagents nationally across Australia.
And that’s not all… We have also made up some sticker packs to go with the issue. Consisting of 4 stickers all wrapped up in a neat package, these are a perfect compliment to the magazine. Click through to our online shop for more details.

Now that spring is in the air, we thought it time to set a date for our next Coffee & Classics breakfast meet in Port Melbourne. What with deadlines, other events and whatnot, the next best date that seems to suit (almost) everybody is the 18th October. Then we looked at the calendar, and low and behold we will have the Fuel Magazine Japan issue ready right around then.
So the next event will be an official launch shindig for the new issue. As we always say, all vehicles are welcome to come along. It’s just a nice, laid back way to cruise into your weekend, and check out some nice metal at the same time. On top of that of course this time we will have a brand spanking issue of Fuel Magazine to look at.
Last time we had some pretty special machinery turn up, including our current cover car and an original Lancia Aurelia (see it here), so you never know what’s going to happen at one of these.
There will be a couple of great cafes open on the day; Salford Lads Club and the new Rocco & Coe, so all your caffeine and culinary requirements will be met. And Uncle Rocco’s barber shop will be in full flow, so book yourself in for a cut.
Keep an eye on our Fuel Magazine Facebook page where we will posting updates about the event leading up to it, and news of the new issue’s arrival.

Save the date. Our next Coffee & Classics morning will take place on the 18th October in Port Melbourne. More details to come next week.
We just signed off on the layout design for Tank Moto issue 05. There’s lots of good articles in there, one of which is on Viet Nguyen’s cool art. This is a snap we found on Viet’s Instagram page, and there are plenty more. See a full interview with Viet when Tank Moto arrives shortly.
