Try this link... http://www.scubatoys.com/paintball/scubafills2.asp

Smallest Scuba is an 80 cf, but you get the idea on how quickly the pressure drops. Good luck!

But the problem is each fill is less than the last. What my buddy does is he has two tanks. One low, one high. fill from the low first, then top off with the high.

Cascade filling. gives you higher pressure fills

You could get 20+ fills... but the pressure would be very low.

first fill you will get 3000Psi second 2800, third 2600 ETC...... pressure keeps dropping, thats why you keep a high pressure tank as well
