Non Caustic Electrolyte
I see that Dutchman has a Non Caustic Electrolyte available. Has anyone tried this, or know what it is? I did a google search on it, a lot of their dealers have it available, but it isn't cheap.

Nothing is cheap at the Dutchman's place...
My guess is: mild acid base (citric or acetic...etc), or some "special" ocean water secret formula...Or just ASK them...

My experience has been that acetic or citric don't work very well either.

They say it double the production with the same amount of current... Anyone has tried that yet?

RE: Non Caustic Electrolyte
Has anyone tried ammonium nitrate as an electrolyte?

Or calcium chloride?

Great stuff when mixed with a little diesel oil. Just try not to be around when it goes bang.

Umm, not wanting to make a bang here. Just to see if anyone tried it yet, and the results if any.
Does anyone know what you would get if you used ammonium nitrate as an electrolyte?

I would suspect that, in addition to H2 and O2, you would also get quantities of ammonia and nitrogen given off during electrolysis, neither of which are particularly desirable.

RE: Non Caustic Electrolyte
OK, have been doing some research, and I think I will try potassium carbonate as an alternate. It is non caustic, and wikipedia has a reference to "oxyhydrogen production". Here's the link: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potassium_carbonate

Wish I knew a chemist.
What about sodium carbonate?

Haven't tried washing soda (Sodium carbonate), but have used baking soda (Sodium bicarbonate) in the past. Inefficient when compared with NAOH, or KOH, and has a tendency to produce brown 'mud'.
Why not test yourself and let us know how you get on?
