I wanna keep it functioning exactly as a golf cart. Push the gas pedal runs the starter/generator and it starts. Then the gas unit powers up the battery via the generator/starter. Let all the way of the gas pedal the gas engine stops. No need for an alternator it works as a proper golf cart should...
It just depends on how much power you need. An alternator gives you options for power output and how many accessories you can run.

I'm with you though, I just run the stock starter/gen for now.
