Ronn Motors Begins Final Field Trials With Fleet Owner RJR Pipkin Company for New GPS Tracking System

GPS Monitoring System to Be Offered for Sale to Fleet Owners

AUSTIN, TX--(Marketwire - April 23, 2009) - Ronn Motor Company, Inc. (PINKSHEETS: RNNM) announced today that it has begun final field trial evaluations, with RJR Pipkin Company, for its GPS tracking system. This system will be offered for sale to fleets alongside the H2GO™ real-time injection system.

Damon Kuhn, COO of Ronn Motors, stated, "We are operating the first GPS tracking systems for base line testing of its proprietary H2GO™ real-time injection system. This information will be tracked for two or three weeks prior to installing the new H2GO™ systems. We believe this will add to our credibility and that fleet owners will see the value and purchase the GPS monitoring system."

Ronn Maxwell, CEO of RNNM, said, "Use of this exclusive Ronn Motors GPS system will provide up-to-the-minute emission monitoring results, plus detailed data for a variety of pertinent & critical engine management functions, including temperatures, pressures, fuel consumption, etc. Information, data, and monitoring will be done in our offices through satellite GPS."

Randy Pipkin, President of RJR Pipkin Company, stated, "We have been closely following the development of the H2GO™ system. In examining test results, we believe use of Ronn Motor's H2GO™ system will contribute towards reducing ongoing operating costs, as well as aid in improving the environment by reducing noxious emissions. The large trucks that our company operate are the backbone of the shipping and commercial industries in the United States and average 6 miles per gallon nationally. Every tenth of a mile increase in their fuel efficiency will increase the truck owner's bottom line." RJR Pipkin Company operates a truck fleet in East Texas and has relationships in the industry to expand sales for the H2GO™ real time injection system."

There are more than 1.9 million tractor trailers operating in the U.S. today and annual sales of new rigs in 2006 were 284,000 units. The U.S. has approximately 360,000 trucking companies and annual fuel consumption accounts for 12.8% of the total fuel purchased in one year. The rising cost of fuel has been cited as a key contributor to trucking company failures in the United States.

Ronn Maxwell continued, "Our new GPS systems will provide us with immediate access to important information and will allow us to more readily track and monitor results data derived directly from the trucks as they roll down the road. It will provide us with a much more accurate picture of reliability, fuel economies and reduced emissions delivered by the H2GO™ system. By connecting the GPS systems into the trucks' on-board computer, all engine related functions including fuel usage, speed, idle times, coolant temperatures, as well as those standard functions such as vehicle location will be tracked, monitored and available in real time."
