As per "man 5 autofs":


If you use the automounter for a filesystem without access permissions 
(like vfat), users usually can't write on such a filesystem because it is 
mounted as user root. You can solve this problem by passing the option 
gid=<gid>, e.g. gid=floppy. The filesystem is then mounted as group 
floppy instead of root. Then you can add the users to this group, and 
they can write to the filesystem. Here's an example entry for an autofs 

floppy-vfat  -fstype=vfat,sync,gid=floppy,umask=002  :/dev/fd0
