hho = water.
Water in gaseous form is steam.
Just build a heater that turns water into steam.

If you want separate H from O then you need two gases as the output. Hydrogen is one output and oxygen is the other output.
For this you need to build an electrolysis machine.

But, ask your insurance company if they will cover the risk of an oxygen production plant in your car, or in your garden , or in your house.
Hear what they say after that long cough/laughter/sound of falling off the chair !

They never learn.

"Brown's Gas" or whatever you call it, is a bomb waiting to blow your head off. Seriously.

Oxyhydrogen is also often mentioned in conjunction with devices that claim to operate a vehicle using water as a fuel. The most common and decisive counter-argument against producing this gas on-board to use as a fuel or fuel additive is that the energy required to split water molecules exceeds the energy recouped by burning it.[14]
So it says...

Oxyhydrogen - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Go here and read the energy resources. Pursuing hydrogen, Brown's Gas and similar things is a fool's errand.

Stoichiometric hydrogen and oxygen mixture can be rather explosive. As others have said, to produce it requires as a minimum the same amount of energy you get by burning it again. System losses make it worse than this. I suppose the only benefit you might get would be if you use solar electricity to produce it - this is (sort of) free.

Yep, "sort of". This may no longer be 100% true, but in general no solar cell ever produces the amount of energy that it took to make it. A useful exception is the solar cell called a tree. It collects for a very long time, then you can burn it to get almost free energy. It can even warm you two or three times over if you have to cut and stack it before burning.

I believe modern solar cells are genuine power sources, although until recently they were just a way of recovering some of the energy used in making them.

Trees are good. Are you suggesting we use wood-burning steam cars?

Or perhaps 'wood gas' powered cars..
