The RON name could be a reference to the term [[wp:Octane Rating|Research Octane Number (RON)]], which measures the amount of octane in petrol, or to the [[wp:ENRON|ENRON]] energy company, while the colors of RON's corporate livery and logo are similar to those of [[wp:Shell Oil Company|Shell]]. RON is also a shortened version of the word "wrong", this might mean to people of Liberty City "You've got RON Oil there".
