I’ve talked about Ronn Motors many times in the past including their Eco Scorpion super car and their H2GO hydrogen boosting system. I’ve also talked about how the H2GO system, if it works as billed, could be a game changer in the automotive industry.
Ronn Motors and East Texas truck fleet owner, RJR Pipkin Company are reporting success in the first field trials of the H2HO direct hydrogen injection system. The H2GO system was installed in a fleet of 2008 Cummins turbo diesel powered Peterbuilt trucks.
After months of R&D, dyno testing and real-time emissions monitoring, the fleet testing showed a 32-percent reduction in CO2 (carbon dioxide) emissions and a 41-percent reduction in NOx (nitrous oxide) emissions.
About a month ago Ronn Motors tested a 2007 Lincoln Navigator (testing the Ford 4.6 liter and 5.4 liter family of engines) and made a conscious decision to balance fuel mileage increases with emissions reductions.
The test results from the Lincoln Navigator are published on the H2GO page and future results such as from the RJR Pipkin field trials will also be published on this page.
