    I got electric. 48 v. Charges in about 8 hrs. One charge is good for about 4-5 days at a big shoot. No gas to go stale, no oil to change, no fumes or pollution. Buy brand name....EZ go has the most aftermarket parts if you want to trick it out. Accessories are limited only by your checkbook. Wheels,tires, liftkits, motor upgrades, lights.....all are available. Have fun!

    Go gas. You never have an 8 hour downtime for charging, which usually happens towards the end of a shoot and you really don't feel like hoofing it. A little bit of StaBil and no gas worries. Mine goes by the gas pumps twice a year whether it needs it or not.

    I have Yamaha fitted with a dump box. Single cylinder gas motor. The grand kids haven't been able to wear it out yet and they have tried. It's an '04 and still has the original everything except drive belt. Bill

    Gas all the way, unless you have a lot of very steep terrain.

    I have two electric EZ go carts here on the farm. They have worked well for us. Batteries will cost you about $700, plus cables. The battery acid will eventually corrode the aluminum frame. I did check into trading them in for a gas model. The gas EZ go was a 2012 model with a box on the back. $5900 out the door, or $4000 with my trade-ins. My chargers have had to have the rectifiers replaced. About $160. I'll probably trade for a gas model next year. My dealer recommends gas models over battery models. Hope that helps.

    One important thing to consider that was not previously mentioned. Gas carts are approximately 500 lbs. lighter than the electric carts. That is a lot of weight, especially if you plan to tow it with your truck anywhere. The batteries last about 4-5 yrs and have to be replaced after that at a cost of about $700 or so. I have had both, now have a gas one. Good luck with your choice.

    I have an electric ez go. I just finished the World Sporting Clays Tournament in Galt. Up hills and down dales. 3 days, only half gone.

    I carry a generator when I am on a major shoot. Have never had to use it in 5 years.

    The nice thing about electric is, you step on the accelerator and it goes. No fumes, no need to look after the battery...quiet.

    This is the Gas 2007 Yamaha that I have had for 4 years. I put a couple of gun racks in the back, had it painted , put on some new tires and wheels and later put on the light kit. It gets the snot run out of it for two months straight, then I wash it and put it under cover and it is ready in the spring.

    This is my second Yamaha gas cart the last one was a 1991 and the guy that has it now drives it around his place year round. Neither have ever had a problem. These things are as bullet proof as you can get.
