I'm travelling somewhere with a friend, she's driving her SUV. it's a 2 1/2 hour drive (5 roundtrip), and we're splitting gas costs. she said in passing that it cost her $35 to fill up her tank 3/4 of the way last night, and told me to pay her $20 total for gas.

my brain is too fried to figure this out (I just spent three hours doing physics homework), and too many variables are missing for my comfort (how fast does she drive? what's the actual mileage? what mileage does her car get? how much is gas? how big is her tank? ETC.), but can someone make an educated guess (maybe someone that drives an SUV) as to whether, by asking me for $20, she's doing me a favor, screwing me over, or it's about fair? ha, thanks.
