Abstract : The present invention overcomes drawbacks experienced with some of the prior art by providing an electrolytic oxygen hydrogen generator which has high efficiency anode cathode surface areas; small interelectrode spacing; and a low inter-electrode ionic resistance that results in lower operating temperatures and higher efficiencies than is presently available. This is accomplished by designing and electrolytic generator which compromises a cylindrical housing, top and bottom end caps which seal the end portions of the housing, and an electrolyte solution filling a substantial portion of the housing.
