If I were crass enough to be labeling others as idiots, I'd be sure of exactly what I typed so as to not make an idiot of myself!

IMHO I think your definition of an idiot could be a little too broad. One mistake does not an idiot make.

Thank you so much for letting me know I am an idiot. As long as they make gas golf carts and gas cars I will continue being an idiot. I refuse to own an electric car or golf cart.

I couldn't imagine wanting to go on a cross country trip and having to find a place to plug in an electic car .. not to mention the time it would take to charge your batteries.

I would normally agree with you. Normally!

After almost 4 years on this forum I have acquired a list of posters to ignore. Add 1 more to the list! How can you post on a Villages forum and call us idiots? That's "questional (sic)"

Good idea! If you read his/her past posts you'll find more than one questionable posts!

According to TV Carts 90% of carts sold are gas due to the size of the Villages. That an overwhelming number of Idiots and count me as one of them.



How can a cheap post like that make it past Tony?

In each case I ran pack until state of charge was around 48.4 volts (50%).

Do not own a golf car yet but have not formally decided on the dreaded gas versus electric,I keep changing my mind. Great information, thanks for sharing.

With that many gas golf carts in TV, has there been an idiots club started yet? If so, I think I'll get a gas cart so I can join the club! The Villages Florida

You are welcome. I hope to redo that test with one year old batteries to see how far they have degraded. You cannot go wrong with Gas or electric as it is really a blast cruising The Villages. Only the people that follow you will notice your choice

It just hit me that no one has mentioned which (gas vs electric) is worth more money after 4 years of use. It appears to me that a gas cart holds its value more than an electric. This could be that if someone is getting rid of an electric cart around that time it probably needs new batteries.

I do have a friend who buys and sells used carts in The Villages and he pays more for gas carts than electric because the resale demand leans towards gas.

If you were buying a car one of the first things you look at is resale value.
