    A 45 min bottle gives you more of a safety cushion if something goes bad. It doesn't mean you have to stay in for the whole bottle. You can pull a crew out after 15-20 minutes to relieve them. The bottle isn't that much bigger, but if someone gets trapped, you have a lot more time to get them out. 12 minutes into a fire, how much reserve air will you have in a 30 minute bottle?? It may take a RIT team five or more minutes to get to you if something happens.

    Not sure exactly what you're looking for. Give two guys a 30 minute cylinder and put them to work. One guy may get 12 minutes work time out of it and the other guy 20 minutes.
