The A-5 is known to be a gas hog (Especially with the r/t or an E-grip)

I think I've read something before about keeping your gun insides smoothed down and oiled, you'll get more shots off a tank. How often do you clean and do maintenance to the insides of your gun?

Well anyways if you havent tried that... ummmm... try it

as said above keep your gun regularly oiled and cleaned, change o rings accordingly, possible upgrdes would be an lp kit, and 600 is way to less of shots for that size of a tank, my 12oz is getting 500 shots and I havent done really too many upgrades except r/t, new barrel, and remote line but the r/t should be taking more gas and the remote line should get some back b/c it acts as a exp chamber, its up to you but do what I said above, good luck
