Default Re: Need help choosing a tank

The first number is the tank size in cubic inches, most common is 48, 68 and 72. The second number is the pressure that the tank can hold. So, obviously a tank that holds 4500 psi will give you more shots per fill than one that only fills up to 3000 psi. Sometimes the pressure the tank can hold is abbreviated to 30 or 45, but it means the same thing as 3000 or 4500.

What tank you get depends on how much you want to spend. If your really on a budget a 60$ 48/3000 will suffice, but the 200$ 68/4500 tanks are really the best, and will give you twice as many shots per fill. You get around 500 shots off a 48/3000 and around 1000 with a 68/4500.
