[QUOTE=vintagecar]Alright...one more question... got a neighbor and we were talking about this stuff. He has a 10yr old "charge air" made by devbliss (sp?) it is a single stage, 60 gallon, 15Amp, 6.5HP compressor. [QUOTE]

No way, not possible, a 6.5hp motor is rated at 15 amps .

A 5 hp motor on 230v single phase pulls 28 amps
A 7.5hp motor on 230v single phase pulls 40 amps

This is prime example of the lies compressor manufactures try to pull on us.
