There is no such thing as "HHO" gas.In yourelectrolytic cell it is a simple matter (and much safer) to collectthe hydrogen gas, which is released only at the cathode (negativelycharged electrode), into one container and to collect the oxygen gas,which is released only at the anode (positively charged electrode),into a separate container (as in a Hofmann voltameter). Storing yourfuel and your oxidizer well mixed in a single container is, generallyspeaking, a really really bad idea.Keep exploring, but pleaseread, not just amateur blogs, but reliable authoritative sources.Please learn.
