    Carpool Cost: Approximate vehicle expense for this event is $30.80 (calculated at total Km * $0.28, effective Tuesday, April 23, 2019). This is based on $0.15/Km for maintenance, plus current gas price divide by 9. Note that drivers with large vehicles have the option to adjust this cost based on their vehicles. Your carpool driver will confirm exactly how much money they require to cover costs. Please split the actual amount among all people in the vehicle and bring some change as drivers are not expected to carry change.
