C&C IV | The Japan Issue Launch

FM18 Launch Poster 560

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.

Fuel Tank TV 2.0

2014-08-18 10.38.44

It’s been a stack of work to get to this point, but finally we are happy to launch the newest iteration of our Fuel Tank TV project. It’s bigger, better, and much more comprehensive than the site that went before it.

So what’s new? Well, for a start at the time of writing this there are 560 films playing on the site, which is over 4 time more than we had before. With a much smoother upload process, the site allows us to seamlessly pull in films from the best publishers much quicker than the last site.

The homepage will always show the latest films to be added, with the individual categories below also showing what’s new in that particular category. Once a film is chosen, the individual viewer opens, surrounded by a black border for the best viewing contrast for each film. We even have thumbs up/down icons so you can approve what’s playing.. or not!

Well, there’s lots more to be seen that we can mention here, so why not head over yourself and take a look? Don’t forget to bookmark the site. With new films added daily, and hundreds in the archives to get through, there will always be something to help get you through the morning coffee, whatever your interest.

Fuel Tank TV. Be inspired.
