In my last marathon I carried 6 of the pouches of G1 in a pocket in my jersey and mixed my own during the run. Found it worked really well for me drinking G1 throughout the run. It's mild enough for me not to have to alternate with water and that way I know I'm keeping my sodium up. On the bike I carry a water bottle with G1 mixed very concentrated and mix it with a bottle of water in my jetstream to dilute it to reqular strength.
Gpush is the sponsor for our local Western Canada Triathlon series this year (www.multisportscanada.com). The shop I buy Gpush at told me they are bringing out a Galactose Gel.
unfortunately that last little detail is pretty important when you're trying to convince yourself to replenish and your body isn't quite as interested as it should be.
maybe if i did longer races i'd give it another try, but us short-course types have a lot more attractive options when it comes to fuel...
I wrote an account of how I've been using it in training and racing here: http://www.competitionzone.com/...ation-strategies.htm

Get your FIX today?
1. G3, and possibly G4
2. race organizers who don't keep the special needs bags and bottles cooler. i sure wish they'd work harder at that.
i doubt you'd have that problem with putting G2 in your special needs bag, and i suspect G2 might be a better solution for that use anyway.
One complaint I've heard is some people get a lot of gas from the Galactose. I also know two people who tried it and had cramping.
When I e-mailed G-Push I also asked about the taste because I had tried it once a couple of years ago and felt the same way you did. Turns out, they have changed the formula since then, and it's much better now - you should try it again!
