Default On the fence

I think I had my fill of electric carts( maybe). Don't know much about gas but was thinking about it. Yamaha or club car? How reliable are these carts. Looking to find out about gas consumption,maintenance, torque and how fast are they compared to 48volts. Thanks

Yamaha hands down. I have owned several of both in gas powered. I do a lot of camping (not in camp grounds) so I run mostly gas since there isn't a lot of places to plug in an electric.

OK--My opinion, Yamaha. When properly maintained they are very reliable. Gas consumption is really minimal. A full tank lasts a LONG time. Maintenance is minimal--normal small engine stuff, but important. Speed and torque depend alot on tire size.

Do you know about g22's. I have a chance to buy one for $1995.00. Might even look at pricing the newer one's with newer body style.

If the body is clean and it runs I'd snatch that up in a second at that price.

+1 for Yamaha! Although I have a Club Car also. Yamaha's are so versatile. IMO, there are more options for a Yamaha cart...

In a summer I went thru 10 gallons of gas with the kids and their friends on it every night when we went home... Just gas and go, no waiting for the batteries to charge up
