He's clearly a KISA which is good short term but not generally long term.
I will disagree unless you are willing to understand that being a "KISA" doesn't mean that you actually need to save someone. Remember acts of service is a love language and this could just be his love language. Being with you and giving some gas money isn't necessarily a bad thing. If you expect all men that are helpful to be KISAs and run away from them then you'll most likely find yourself being with the ones that treat you shitty.
However if you are not feeling connected, I don't think that you can force that. I think that it would be best to end it and let him move on.AKA Moo
Think of the haters in your life as sandpaper; they’ll scratch you up time and time again but in the end you’re polished, smooth, and spotless..while they end up useless
