Petrol/gasoline has a wide temperature range at which it boils and if it's a winter fuel, will boil at lower temperatures. At sea level a reasonable assumption would be 95C. Octane, butanes and isobutanes, ethanol content all have an impact on the temp at which it boils too. At 1,800m, this will be lower at around 90C; but possibly even lower.
