What is the number 1 problem caused by poor maintenance of golf and utility cars by their owners?
Overfilling their batteries !
Having been in the golf car sales and maintenance business for over 30 years, we see time and time again the many issues caused by owners overfilling their golf and utility car batteries. Overfilling can cause acid from the battery to get on the golf car body, chassis, battery racks, cables, frame, etc. and cause extensive damage due to corrosion in addition to shortening the life of your batteries.
Batteries are the life blood of your electric golf car and can cost you from $800-1200 to replace so extending the life of the batteries and the components under the seat will save you plenty in the long run.

What is the proper water level when manually filling batteries?
Battery water levels should be just below the bottom of the vent well, about 1/2 - 3/4 inch above the tops of the separators (plates). Never let the level drop below the top of the plates.
