I'd say it's a bit trickier than that. Yeah, theoretically, they're both in the car, so 50/50 isn't necessarily an unfair split, but then again the brother is driving there regardless of the OP, so he would be paying x amount for it anyway, so whatever he gets from the OP is already extra savings for him. Plus it's his family and it's not like it's excessive (twice a week when he's going that way anyway). I would appreciate a little something in that situation to even it, but I wouldn't necessarily expect it. I certainly wouldn't make a drama out of not being paid enough. It's not like I'd be going out of my way or doing something I wouldn't be doing anyway.

Can you not read? They can't drive for more than 10 minutes due to chronic pain. So no, they're not choosing not to drive. And the brother drives there anyway, and was already getting fuel money. 🤦🏽‍♀️🙄
