We have a set policy for all of our campouts greater than about 75 miles:
We allow $0.10/mile/vehicle plus any tolls or parking charges. The van
pulling the trailer gets $0.20/mile. Everyone pays the same for the
campout, drivers included; the drivers get reimbursed. "Unneccessary"
drivers (eg., a parent bringing a son late for a campout) get no
reimbursement. When budgeting for a campout, we figure on the basis of 4
occupants per vehicle, including the driver. This allows for different
sized vehicles, less than full vehicles, different departure times, etc.
This is a simple approach, and so far this it worked quite well.
