Recently some researches concerning how to produce HHO gas using electrolysis have been conducted by using several methods and parameters. The problems were the conditioning of hydrogen generator to produce HHO gas that can affect the efficiency of electric current applied on the equipment. The surface of the anode and cathode used in a hydrogen generator have to be considered. Based on Faraday Law, the number of particles produced by the electrode is proportional to the amount of electric current applied to the electrolysis cell. After some calculation, the surface of the stainless steel electrode used in the hydrogen generator was 66 cm2. This research conditioning is focused on the variation of electrolyte concentrations used and how much electric current applied to hydrogen generator. Variations of electrolyte concentrations and applied electric current were conducted to see the relation between those parameters and HHO gas produces, and finally, the best set up was achieved to get the highest volume of HHO gas by electrolysis. The best set up was electrolyte concentration of sodium hydroxyl was 0.05 M and applied current was 15 A to produce 0.1028 LPM HHO gas with the electric current efficiency of the hydrogen generator 89.13%.
