This describes a Browns gas generator. it can generate about 2 cubic meter of HHO, using up several liters of 'gas' (the liquid car food stuff) to produce the electricity needed...

You need a lot of current to produce just a trickle of gas. Hydrogen atoms are that hard to part from oxygen.
The boom is impressive though. Lighting just a liter of HHO is already quite dangerous. Storing the gas in a large container may be a lethal mistake.
