Governor's gas tax proposal off base
I agree wholeheartedly with Gov. Jack Markell that those who use Delaware's highways should pay for the upkeep and improvement of our highways with taxes on gasoline.

We already have a gas tax and a 10% ethanol mixture of fuel that causes damage to our vehicles and especially small engines. To add more gas tax and increase the ethanol % will help matters? Are you kidding me? Last year the fuel pump replacement cost on our car that has 40K miles on it was $600, several chain saws, a snow blower, a log splitter and two mowers also required service that was due to ethanol fuel use. Yes I also added the additive to prevent ethanol problems and it helped because the previous year was worse. The suggestion to empty all small engines after use is simply impractical for most of us. Murphy's law predicts that your vehicle will fail at the most inconvenient time, ours did when I was taking my spouse home after a minor operation.
