I never had anybody chip in for gas when they rode with me. Sometimes they'd offer a slice or two of pizza and then proclaim that was their share. Back then when gas was under 2.00 it was bad enough but today I can't afford bumming.

I seem to recall piggie giving me a rough time for having 3 passengers cough up 5 bucks each for a round trip to the red.

I always preferred having a semi-gay long term partner and just alternating who drives. Seems to avoid any awkwardness (except for the sexual tension).

Shamis, I like this too, but often it doesn't work well.

Since mpg and gas prices can vary, especially coming from Indianapolis that is flat and then getting down in the hill country which will lower mpg, here is how my group does it.

Before you leave, fill your tank full. When you get back fill you tank full. Keep track of any gas put in between when you leave and get back. Divide that number by the number of passengers and done. Couples don't count as one even if it is your vehicle being used :). Kids are questionable, depends on how big they are. You start with a full tank and you end with a full tank. You don't count the cost of the full tank before you leave.

In my honest opinion, the person who is providing the transportation shouldn't have to pay anything. Their expensive is wear/tear on the vehicle etc. But typically I would be going anyway so I always just divide it equally per person.
