If you have ever considered purchasing a powered scooter, then this may be the perfect time since the gas prices keep going sky high. There are many different types available so you can compare and then choose which type will fit your needs the best; one of the electric or gas scooters.

The gasoline scooter can usually get more mileage before having to refuel, whereas even the top electric scooter battery will need recharging every few hours or around 16 miles. The gas powered scooters can take you several miles (around 250-300) on a single gallon tank so that saves you money because you would use less gas to fill it and it results in less fuel stops.

When debating the pros and cons of both the gas and electric scooters be sure to keep in mind that when it comes to speed the gas scooters are easier on the wallet. Meaning that even if you drive faster, looking at the results proportionally, you will still be paying less. If you plan on doing a lot of driving, then most would agree that the gas scooter is probably the best option. The gasoline scooters that are close in price to the electric models will generally go 10-20 mph faster.

The gas motor scooters usually last longer as they are more durable, in part due to the fact that they are designed to handle higher speeds, as well as quite a few models being able to go off road as well. These scooters work well in all seasons, unlike the electric scooter battery that decreases in power during both extreme cold and heat. Refueling is much easier when using a gas scooter, as you can just add gas, yet with electric scooters, it is rather difficult to charge a battery when you are on the go and it takes about 4 to 8 hours for it to charge completely.

If you purchase a gas scooter, then you are saving money right from the start, as cars and motorcycles area easily 3 to 5 times more expensive. Due to the straight forward, durable and basic design of the gas scooters, the need for repairs is rare; however, when necessary the scooters parts should be readily available so you should have very minimal down time. Many times an insurance company will charge much less to insure the scooter, compared to an automobile. An added bonus for those who are environmentally concerned is the fact that scooters actually spew less emissions than cars and motorcycles; therefore, you will doing your part to help keep the environment green.
