    stop spending money on him when he doesn't on you. Stop driving him for free when he expects petrol money from you ect.

    but I don't see how you have any right to expect him to pay extra for things, for example why should you expect him to pay more for the holiday than you. If he offered great that would be a lovely thing to do but not something you should expect.

    It should be well balanced and not about who is buying what! However, your situation seems to be one sided.
    He sounds very materialistic and he has money purely because he is thrifty with it.
    Stop spending, tell him you can't afford it the next time you have to drive on a long journey. Explain that as you are on a very tight budget, he will need to share costs with you or try a shock tactic - ''Can you please contribute to the petrol?''.
    Just as he points out when you want to buy a toothbrush (example) you will need to do the same, after all it seems he is always making a statement - you need to be yourself and it seems this guy is very selfish and absorbed by his materialism.
