Gasoline-powered, E-Z-GO golf carts are equipped with an internal combustion engine similar to the motor installed in passenger automobiles. A golf cart must undergo regular maintenance like vehicles powered by traditional engines.
A golf cart battery is actually a deep cycle battery. This type of battery is also referred to as “wet” or “flooded” batteries because of the electrolytes they contain. These electrolytes are comprised of a water and acid solution that produces an electrical current over long periods of time. The batteries work by consuming a considerable amount of water within their predicted lifespan.
