An expansion chamber will not make your gun use less air. What size is the 3000 psi tank? About how many balls do you shoot per game? A 48ci tank should give you about 450-500 shots per fill, a 68ci tank would be about 650-700, depending on your gun.

have a 48 cu tank and the amount of balls I shoot depends, but I suppose my average is my eggy and about 3 pods so for what you told me that seems about right. So my next question is should I go back 2 CO2 would that be any better? I ask cause I have run out of air in the middle of a game and all I can do was direct traffic.

CO2 will give you more shots per fill. You can go back to CO2 and get more shots per fill, or just top off every game.
