[pct-l] Fuel Usage

I was searching around on the web trying to find a formula for boiling
points at altitude, when I found something that I'd forgotten - if you
dissolve something (like salt) in water it raises the boiling point. So you
might be able to use that to (somewhat) counterract the lowered boiling
point from altitude. For any of the college students on the list who might
be taking chemistry, does this make any sense?
