I'm not sure where your information comes from, but stated volume is calculated at fill pressure.There is a lot to be said for a Faber steel LP 95. Low fill pressure ( 2400 + 10%). At 2640 psi the tank holds a little over 100cf. I like the negative weight too. The down side is that the tank is a little wider and increases drag slightly.
The other cats meow is a set of old Scubapro steel 72's doubled. Again, these low pressure tanks can be pumped up 10% and provide a little over 150 cubic feet. I like them doubled because they are only 7 1/2 inches in circumference each and have a very low drag profile.
Don't skip the deco stops...........
A 95 is 95 cf at 2640, not at 2400.
Same with a steel 72, they are 72cf at 2475, not 2250.
