Gas Golf Cars take automobile gas straight from a can or gas station fuel pump. These cars require very little routine maintenance, can be used all day without needing to charge, and do not need any access to a power outlet. They offer more horsepower and may be better suited to handle various electronic accessories. Gas cars tend to run faster and can accommodate a heavier load. Campgrounds are popular landing spots for gas-powered cars.
Electric golf cars are powered by a rechargeable battery. The battery requires regular charging and maintenance of water levels. They offer smooth acceleration, silent operation, and no exhaust fumes. These cars are environmentally friendly, as they do not produce emissions. Many golf courses require electric golf cars due to their silent, fume-free operation.
