Razor EcoSmart Metro Upgrade, Faster and Farther

Hi so I currently have a Razor Ecosmart Metro that I purchased last August. It is my main way of getting around, but the batteries are needing to be replaced. Right now they go half the distance they used to before the scooter slows down.

*blatant copy/paste*

~Speeds up to 18 mph (29 km/h)

~Up to 40 minutes of continuous use

~Steel frame with bamboo deck

~Variable speed, high-torque, chain-driven, 500W motor

~Twist-grip acceleration control

~Hand operated rear brakes

~Large 16" pneumatic tires

~Comfortable padded seat

~Removable luggage rack and basket included

~Retractable kick stand

~36V (three 12V) sealed lead acid rechargeable battery system

So these are the scooter stats I got from Amazon. (where I purchased the scooter)

So what I want to know is what I would have to do to get my scooter to go, namely, farther. If possible faster. My main concern is for it to go at least 1.5x farther than normal, twice as far is ideal. 

As for speed, even if its a measly 5mph more, that would be awesome. 25 mph is ideal. 

What would this require? New batteries? More powerful batteries? I'm a complete novice at scooter modification, so if possible, can yall keep it simple? Also, do yall sell a new deck for the scooter? mine is fairly worn and I would like a new one If possible. Also, Is there a way for the batteries to charge faster? 

I've attached a picture of what it looks like. Mine of course is more dingy.
