Frigette Energy Systems Receives Initial Purchase Order From RJ Pipkin Company, Ltd. for Ronn Motors' H2GO™ Systems

Confirms Impressive 32% CO2 Reduction, Fuel Economy Improvement and a 41% Drop in NOx

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - October 26, 2009) - Ronn Motor Company (PINKSHEETS: RNNM) announced today that it has received one of the first orders for its H2GO™ systems from RJ Pipkin Company, Ltd., a large truck fleet owner/operator based in West Texas.

With Frigette beginning limited H2GO™ production, and with thousands of miles of over-road testing and field trials completed, analyzed, confirmed and verified on Pipkin's big-rig trucks, specifically on 2008 Cummins turbo diesel powered Peterbuilts, RJ Pipkin Company, Ltd. has committed (signed purchase order) to begin the retrofit to H2GO™ systems on their big-rig fleet trucks.

Pertinent data for the extensive over-road field trial was collected and recorded under various operational conditions. On average, the results revealed a significant 32% CO2 reduction, an equally impressive improvement in fuel savings as well as a 41% reduction in NOx.

Randy Pipkin, President of RJ Pipkin Company, Ltd., stated, "We are truly looking forward to this system. Based on the decisive results we have achieved in our field trial, we know that H2GO™ will pay for itself within a few months and will have a significant impact on our bottom line. It will provide a number of benefits by reducing our fuel and engine maintenance costs, giving us a major competitive advantage in our market. It also provides us with a sustainable, environmentally friendly technology that will reduce our carbon footprint and allow us to easily meet and exceed upcoming government emission regulations with our existing fleet."

Ronn Motors CEO, Ronn Maxwell, commented, "Large big-rig trucks are the backbone of the shipping and commercial industries in the United States. These large fleet trucks average a mere 6 miles per gallon nationally. With replicable mileage improvement results, such as those achieved by RJ Pipkin, H2GO™ can improve fuel efficiency for all big-rig fleet owners/operators, as well as provide a positive impact on the environment through significant reductions in noxious emissions."
