Will heating a zinc chloride solution made from reacting Zinc with HCl produce HCl fumes? Answered

I am going to make a solution of zinc chloride by mixing hydrochloric acid with an excess of zinc. In the experiment I want to do, I have to heat the zinc chloride. Will there be any HCl fumes?

How would zinc chloride make HCL fumes if there's no hydrogen in ZnCl2....
Zn + 2HCl --> ZnCl2 + H2, the hydrogen leaves as a gas....

Well to make Zinc Chloride, you need Zinc and Hydrochloride Acid. Hydrochloride acid contains Hydrogen. So I believe that if an excess of Hydrocloride Acid was to be added, maybe not all of the hydrogen would be evaporated. Which can lead to HCl gas. I might be.
