Our expert says:
In the old days, when petrol was cheap, people felt much more free to drive around and to offer lifts, now every time someone asks for a lift, the driver thinks about the high cost. And a long lift also takes time, which maybe he can't easily aford, either, and perhaps at a time that would be hard for him to manage.
If he feels that you believe that as his elder sister he somehow OWES this to you, or that you can just tell him what to do, he is likely to resent this. Tell him you admire his car and his good sense in buying it. And mention that if at any time it is convenient for him to take you home ( or whatever ) when it is on his way, you'd be happy to pay for the petrol, and leave it to him to offer if and when he wants to do so
