The Delaware Motor Fuel Distributor Bond is required by the State of Delaware, Motor Fuel Tax Administration. Any gasoline distributor must obtain this surety bond (in the amount of a three month’s tax liability; minimum $5,000, maximum of $200,000).
If you wish to import gasoline products (defined here) into Delaware and use, sell or distribute them, you will need to obtain a license from the Department of Transportation. In order to get that license, you will need to complete the Motor Fuel Distributor License Application, which you can find on the DE Department of Transportation’s website.
In addition to this application and the required $10 processing fee, you will also need to obtain a Delaware Motor Fuel Distributor Bond, issued by a company licensed in Delaware.
The coverage amount of your bond needs to be equivalent to three month’s tax liability, with a minimum of $5,000 and a maximum of $200,000.
