HOUSTON, TX–(Marketwire -04/02/12)- Ronn Motor Company (Pinksheets: RNNMD.PK – News) has now changed its name, effective today, to VydroTech, Inc and announces a one-for-seven reverse stock split. …
“VydroTech was selected because we desire to be a visionary hydrogen technology company,” said David McGee, CEO of VydroTech, Inc. …
Given the pressures of the price of fuel and the demand by the public and the government to lower emissions, the company positioned itself to focus on addressing these immediate fuel consumption and emission issues rather than building exotic supercars. Mr. McGee further stated, “Our products are focused on delivering results for three distinct operating platforms — large over the road diesel trucks (e.g., trucks like 18-wheelers); barges, tugboats and launches that operate within coastal waterways; and large land-based diesel generators. Our future clients will have one or two of the following distinct needs: (1) a need to reduce their diesel fuel costs by 10% – 20% and / or (2) a need to reduce their harmful gas emissions and become more compliant with existing and future stringent emission standards set by governmental agencies.”

up to 200 mph and will get 40 miles to the gallon
“Unlike with a hydrogen fuel cell car, the Scorpion’s, hydrogen on demand, system won’t require a high-pressure hydrogen storage tank. Nor will a driver need to find and fill up at a hydrogen fueling station. However, the hybrid, gas and hydrogen system, will only increase fuel mileage between 20% to 40% while reducing CO2 emissions to nearly zero.”
“Electricity from the Scorpion’s alternator sends an electric charge through the water in a storage tank, fracturing molecules and releasing hydrogen, which is injected into the motor, explained Ronn Maxwell, CEO of Ronn Motor in Horseshoe Bay, Texas.”
A few exotic sports cars won’t, by themselves, do much for the environment, but putting the same technology on hundreds of big, long-haul, diesel trucks will, and RONN Motors is doing that as well:

AUSTIN, TX–(Marketwire – July 30, 2009) – Ronn Motor Company (PINKSHEETS: RNNM) announced today that results are now available for the H2GO system over-road field trial conducted by RJ Pipkin Company, LTD, a large truck fleet owner/operator based in West Texas.
The H2GO real-time hydrogen injection system was installed on Pipkin’s fleet of large trucks, specifically a 2008 Cummins turbo diesel powered Peterbuilt. Various data points, including information obtained from real-time emissions monitoring, were recorded with the H2GO system and then compared to baseline data points recorded last month prior to the H2GO installation.
Results for this over-road field trial indicated a significant 32% CO2 reduction as well as an equally remarkable 41% reduction in NOx. A reduction in CO2 emissions is directly correlated to a reduction in fuel consumption / mileage improvement. The actual data and graphs will be posted on the website within the next few days.
Damon Kuhn, Ronn Motor Company COO, stated, “The results achieved from this H2GO field trial are right in line with our expectations based on months and months of extensive research, development and dyno testing. These impressive numbers should remain consistent through the remaining over-road field trials. We expect RJ Pipkin Company to begin retrofiting its fleet as soon as Frigette Energy Systems finalizes the production tooling.”
Large trucks, as those operated by RJ Pipkin, 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.

AUSTIN, TX–Ronn Motor Company, Inc. (RMC) (PINKSHEETS: RNNM) today clarified and expanded upon the H2GO computerized test data for Ford engines. Detailed results can be viewed on Ronn Motors’ website at http://www.ronnmotors.com/h2go.
H2GO Real Time Hydrogen Injection System
The H2GO system is the first complete package in a series of green technologies that RMC is building for the future. It is a bridge solution which can be implemented economically on any internal combustion engine and it can be implemented today.
H2GO provides an immediate solution for the global transportation industry in its quest to greatly reduce greenhouse gas emissions. As well, in an era of higher gasoline prices, the H2GO technology will provide consumers with an immediate and substantial fuel cost savings.
H2GO was designed, developed and tested on Ronn Motor Company’s own finely built, eco-exotic supercar, the Scorpion, as an effective means to deliver, market and showcase H2GO, as well as prove the technology.
H2GO is designed to be easily and quickly be installed on any vehicle, from the largest turbo diesel powered truck to the typical gasoline powered family vehicle and high performance sports car.
H2GO creates hydrogen as a vehicle is driven on the road and does not use any on-board high pressure hydrogen storage tank.
Ronn Motors CEO, Ron Maxwell, commented, “We have completed exhaustive research, extensive testing and retesting, dedicating thousands of man hours in our quest for the ultimate solution. During this time, we have established that our proprietary electronics for the H2GO system can be easily tuned to attain very impressive and significant fuel mileage improvements. However, the most significant fuel savings come at a cost, and that cost is a major sacrifice of emissions reduction. As such, we have made a conscious decision to tune the electronics, such that our H2GO system delivers a reasonable balance between emission reduction and improved fuel economy.”

June 2009 – Excerpt of Joe Vitale interview by Drex Earle, Editor-in-Chief, Austin Fit Magazine
Joe Vitale Has Green on His Mind
Best-selling author, motivational speaker, mass marketer and the mind beyond the “Law of Attraction,” Dr. Joe Vitale is a man who lives big, bold and without regrets. He’s also one of the most environmentally-conscious people you’ll ever meet. Once homeless, Vitale is now a well-known entrepreneur who travels the world teaching people how to attract love, relationships and even money into their own lives. We could all use a little more “green” in our lives these days, and Vitale may just have the secret to finding it.
The Scorpion HX
Quite possibly the world’s “greenest” supercar, the Scorpion is an exotic hotrod redefined. Boasting 650 horsepower, top speeds approaching 200 miles per hour and a 0 to 60 time that rivals most motorcycles, it still manages to get 40 mpg with virtually zero emissions.
Joe Vitale has purchased the Limited Edition Scorpion HX
QUESTION & ANSWER:
So you and the Scorpion are both pretty environmentally-conscious. How exactly did you find out about this exotic “green” supercar?
Actually, it was in the Dupont Registry. I opened up a two-page spread about this hydrogen car. I called up the manufacturer, Ronn Motors, and found out they were located in Marble Falls, which was only 40 minutes away from my house in Wimberley. Of course I wanted to know how the car worked and how exactly they get the hydrogen. My fear was having to find hydrogen stations – there’s none in Texas that I’m aware of. The folks at Ronn Motors said, “No, we invented this system and it’s onboard.”
Basically, you put water in a (less than a gallon) tank, and it makes hydrogen as soon as you start the car. I drove down to meet them, and before I left I knew I wanted the first car. I became an investor, stockholder and I promote it every time I get a chance.
With this car, it’s obviously a marriage of a lot of things. For you, what’s the most compelling piece? Is it the eco-friendly aspect or the fact that it’s a super sports car?
Well frankly, it’s both. This truly is an environmentally-friendly super hotrod and one of the only ones on the planet. When I was at the Panoz factory (which made my Esperante), I told them, “If you make me an environmentally-friendly muscle car, I will buy it.” I love the company, and I figured they would make a good car, but they never got around to it. Then I found Ronn Motors and the Scorpion. The fact is, this car is more environmentally-friendly than battery cars. First of all, you have to rape the earth to make a battery, and then sooner or later you dump that battery back into the earth. It’s a very short-term, short-sighted solution.
So do you think the Scorpion represents the future of what a “green” car can be? Do you think there will be more cars emerging like this?
You’re going to see more cars with this system in them. Ronn Motors has created a way to put the hydrogen system that’s in the Scorpion into any car. And that’s where you’re going if you want to make something environmentally-friendly – take the car you already love and drop the emissions. In many ways this car is just a way to get attention for the system.
