Gas is available at Red/Gray Fox courses. Village Golf Carts also have a service barn there also. The Magnolia Plaza will is accessibly by golf cart.

Make sure the gas at Red/gray fox is ethanol free, otherwise don't use it. You would be better off filling up a couple of gas cans at the Villages Golf Cart pumps in either Browmwood, LSL, or SS. All are ethanol free. In the long run your golf cart will thank you. And a couple of 5 gallon cans of gas will last you a very long time in the Villages south until it is connected to the rest of the Villages. And by then, I am sure there will be another Villages Golf Cart facility in the south. Also, there are several excellent golf cart mechanics that will come to your home by appointment to service your cart. We use Todd Casey and have been very happy with his service.

This advise is most definitely optional. Pump gas with 10% ethanol is fine to use. Your engine will run fine for many, many miles.

I agree with the above post if you are a full time Villages resident and use your cart on a daily basis. However, if you are a part time resident and your cart often sits unused for extended periods of time, ethanol can cause big troubles with your fuel delivery system. A good quality fuel stabilizer can reduce the problems caused by ethanol, but is no substitute for using ethanol free gas. Ask any small engine mechanic what is by far their largest source of business and they will tell you it is fixing problems caused by gas containing ethanol. I will never understand the logic of having gas that contains corn (ethanol) when there are so many people starving in this world?

That service barn and gas at Red/Gray Fox IS the Village Golf Carts. Why would they supply different gas there than their other facilities??

After we had owned here for a year as snowbirds, we bought a used gas four seater. That was 13 years ago and the used gas four seater is still running nicely. We have added a new gas two seater so we have seats for the family when they come visit.

I always use premium fuel. When I am gone I add stabilizer and fill to the top. Never a problem.

Premium fuel with a higher octane won't do any harm but the low compression engines in golf carts run fine on regular fuel at a lower cost. When in doubt, consult the owner's manual for fuel recommendations.
