Actually you are comparing apples to oranges there because single phase and three phase refers simply to the type of power hook-up and has zero to do with the difference between a single stage and two stage compressor, a two stage compressor is going to be more efficient than a single stage REGARDLESS of the power connection. The terms phase and stage relate to two entirely different things and one has nothing to do with the other.

If you plan on using a HVLP paint gun you will have big problems trying to do so with only 12 CFM!

12 CFM may be OK for a conventional gun but you will run out of air with the HVLP, that larger tank would cause more problems here than it would just running the air tools because you WILL still run out of air and that long recharge time would be a paint job killer!
