I don't know if I am the friend you were talking about - but your explanation is right on. They fly better and can fly longer with the fuel. Balloons work on the temperature difference between the inside air and outside air temp.

Great series Gil

Thank you very much Shirley.
I can't tell you much about Balloons, but I do know that the colder the temperature, the better it is to fly. That's one reason they fly early mornings and when it gets so warm, they can't fly so well.
Guess it takes less hot air to raise the Balloon, when it is cold. May see if a friend can explain that better.
