That is a lot of gas. Sooner or later the price will be affordable.

I have question about the lithium batteries? With my battery powered tools with lithium they run good, then all sudden the tool dead due to the battery when dead. On my EGO batteries they have light that’s green then turns amber when the battery fixing to die? How do the batteries in golf cart react with lithium’s? Is there gage that tells you when the are about gone or do they just die like my lithium powered tools?

My country club are looking at a new 5 year lease on their carts. The Elite is the top of their list. They were told they could save up to 50% on their electric bill.

Or do what I did here and build your own for around $2,500. I get more than 50 miles in my RXV while driving hard at 20-25 mph on 21" tires using less than 80% of the batteries capacity.

They mostly just die, sort of like when you run out of gas with a gas powered cart. The difference with gas is you have more miles to get around to refueling. The difference with electric is you can refuel at home. I guess you could keep a 5 gallon can of gasoline at home, but it is not recommended.

With the lithium batteries you can do a quick "top off charge" on the batteries if you can find an outlet to plug into.

You can get that on Trojans in the newer carts. Supposedly lithium will give you more range. I did learn that they advertize lithium will last up to 10 years but the warranty is for 3 years....hmmmmm?
