Gas vs Electric Powered Golf Carts
November 14, 2015 – 05:13 pm

The first major decision to make when purchasing a new golf car is to choose between gas or battery powered motors. For first time buyers this can be somewhat of a daunting task as this is unfamiliar territory – especially when it comes to battery powered vehicles.

Like most choices, there are pros and cons for each side that must be well thought out before diving right in. This article aims to lay out all of these points for both gas and electric powered golf carts to help make the decision a little easier for would-be buyers.

Application & Preference

When new customers come in they invariably ask, “What’s better, gas or electric?” My answer is always the same – it largely depends on how you plan to use your golf car and what your preferences are. These days, people get pretty creative with their golf carts so the intended uses can vary more than you might think. For the average user either type of golf car will make a perfectly fine recreational vehicle. Electric golf carts run nearly silently and have no fuels or oils to deal with, perfect for supporters of the green movement. Gas golf carts are a little more on the noisy side and will obviously require gas to operate - regular unleaded, to be exact.

Electric golf carts do depend on their batteries for power, so if you’re someone who wants to use your golf cart for hours upon hours at a time, you may want to stick with gas. This especially holds true for those that enjoy camping and RVing – if you don’t have access to power neither will your electric golf cart.

Another point that’s often forgotten is the amount of accessories you plan to install on your golf cart. If you want stereos, lighting, fans, heaters, etc. all of this takes a considerable amount of power. For an electric cart this energy comes right out of the same bank of batteries that your motor relies on. Gas golf cart accessories will also rely on battery power, however, they feature a starter/generator that will charge the battery on its own while the gas pedal is depressed. This doesn’t mean a gas golf cart battery is invincible - any accessories left on while the cart isn’t running will eventually kill your battery.
