In this YouTube Video, Ronn Maxwell describes the car the Governor drove on March 11, 2009, and how, using Hydrogen On Demand (also called "Hydrogen Boost" or "Hydrogen Assist") his car gets 40 miles per gallon: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=vV4QK-NJEEA&NR=1

 This story is from the Wednesday March 11, 2009 Ronn Motor Press Release posted on Yahoo Finance:

AUSTIN, TX--(MARKET WIRE)--Mar 11, 2009 -- On Tuesday, March 10, 2009, California Governor Arnold Schwarzenegger test drove Ronn Motor Company's (Other OTC:RNNM.PK - News) acclaimed Scorpion(TM), a hydrogen assisted eco-exotic sports car capable of hitting 40 miles per gallon and 200 miles per hour. The test drive with Ronn Motor's founder and CEO Ronn Maxwell in the passenger seat, came after Schwarzenegger read a recent article in Men's Journal which proclaimed the Scorpion(TM) as "God's Own Supercar."

Schwarzenegger is consistently on record as an advocate of fuel efficiency and as an automobile enthusiast. His well-publicized interest in the Hummer was seen as a critical moment in that brand's expansion and popularity. Additionally and according to the Washington Post, Schwarzenegger had one of his beloved Hummers retooled to run on alternative fuels. In 2006, the actor-turned-governor signed the nation's first environmental law of its kind, committing the state to lowering its greenhouse gas production to 1990 levels by 2020 and setting up an international program that provides manufacturers with incentives to lower carbon emissions by 2012.

After receiving an inquiry from Schwarzenegger directly after the Men's Journal hit newsstands, Maxwell fulfilled his promise to bring the car to California, parking the curvaceous Scorpion(TM) on the steps of the Capital building for a photo-op with the news media and a curious public.

During the press conference, the governor talked about his ongoing support of small boutique companies such as Ronn Motor Company, which are developing much needed alternative energy technologies so that America can reclaim its leadership in the automotive industry. Schwarzenegger asserted his desire that the Big 3 auto makers take more initiative in alternative energy solutions that are good for the country. The Governor also stated that he was pleased with Ronn Motor Company for creating new jobs and opportunities for California.

Ronn Maxwell, CEO of Ronn Motors, stated, "We are very humbled and excited that the Governor has expressed a real enthusiasm in the technologies that we have developed, as well as his interest in potentially purchasing a Scorpion(TM). We'd like nothing more than this icon of pop culture and politics to be a Scorpion(TM) owner and are looking forward to a long term relationship with Governor Schwarzenegger."

The Scorpion will feature Ronn’s new and exclusive hydrogen fuel injection (HFI) fuel delivery system. The system provides hydrogen on demand, which is injected directly into the motor. This alternative fuel approach allows the company to increase fuel mileage between 20% - 40% and reduce carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions to nearly zero.
