The problem with adding another 45 gallons to that little compressor is that it would take forever for it to fill up! Even if someone is willing to wait all that extra time to charge the the tank it would GREATLY exceed the compressor's duty cycle, which is going to be quite low anyway on that unit, it for sure would result in an overheated pump! Unfortunately adding a bigger tank does work even on larger compressors and the problems it would crate are even greater on one this small.
