Hi,
Does anyone know how many shots I should expect to get from a 98 custom fitted with a 62/3000 air tank?

I would guess around 600 or 700 max.

Yeah, I'm going to go even lower than that. I'm thinking in the 500 range personally. Conventional wisdom when I was a tech was that a 68ci 4500psi tank would give you the same number of shots as a 20oz CO2 tank. Our average expected for a 20oz tank was 600-800 shots, so given the lower pressure and smaller size, I'm going to guess around 450-500 at best.

550-620

The old formula that everyone used to use was that with a 3000 psi tank you could figure on about 10 shots/cu. in. with the average mechanical marker.  (It was 15 shots per cubic inch with a 4500 psi tank.)  I estimate low because, in my experience, stock Tippmanns seem to be slightly less efficient than your average mechanical marker.
