Been- I would not be the least bit concerned about that tank since you have a 2 stage you have pump capacity and that is what counts, honestly an 80 gallon tank with that same compressor would make no noticeable difference and not one bit more air. With an 80 gallon tank your compressor would kick on and off less often(but run longer each time) making life a little easier on the pump and motor, that is what the bigger tank is for, but hardly enough to matter much. The 60 gallon tank will keep up with your tools just as good as the 80 since the compressor CFM would remain the same regardless of tank size and total air delivery would be equal for both tanks.
