Not the same old tipping question.... sort of

We plan to book a private charter. We already know we should tip the captain. However, do we tip on the fee for the trip or the fee for the day + gas consumption amount?

We do 20% on the fee - works out to around $100

Charter fee only.

Last time we had to pay for the gas personally so it didn't factor into the charter cost.
