GAS PROS: Gas golf carts tend to be more powerful than electric carts, letting them pull heavier loads. And while you won’t have to worry about your cart’s battery life, you WILL need to monitor fuel levels and refill your gas cart if necessary. They also come with a Carolina beach sticker parking pass so you can park in the public parking lots on the island.
GAS CONS: Gas golf carts offer a slightly rougher ride. They give off a mild vibration, make more noise, release more exhaust odors, and radiate heat from beneath the seats. While both gas and electric golf carts are reliable, gas golf carts have more parts – and thus, are more likely to go bad or develop an unforeseen issue.
OUR GAS GOLF CARTS ARE ONLY ALLOWED IN CAROLINA BEACH (NOT KURE BEACH OR FORT FISHER).
ELECTRIC PROS: Running on battery instead of gas means that you’ll get a smoother, more peaceful ride without all the noise, smells, and vibrations of gas carts. And while gas golf carts are typically faster than most electric carts, that’s not the case SunFun’s electric Advanced EV golf carts. Getting up to 25 mph, our readily available Advanced EV golf carts are street legal at Carolina Beach AND Kure Beach.
ELECTRIC CONS: The main drawback of electric golf carts is the battery life. It can be challenging to determine when electric carts will run out of battery. And depending on the cart, you may only be able to ride 30 to 40 miles on a single charge. While that may not seem like very much, most people only travel 5 to 10 miles per day. Golf carts last 1 hour and 30 min so keep that in mind while driving.
