Where did you get that?

Re-read what Tom listed as the calculation
criteria;

"Again, the test subject was 220 lbs and 76
inches tall. I ran 2 configurations. In each
configuration, I ran single PST 104 tanks and
an EE Pro 6 cannister light."

No where in that statement does it say that the
Streamlined diver wore twins and the Backpack
diver wore a single. The "S" word before the
words and numbers 'PST 104' indicate ONE tank was
figured in the calcs for each configuration.

If you wish to distort the information, at least
be more accurate... if that's possible.
