It would help if we new what your needs are such as Air arc, Jack hammer, Plazma, impacts, sand blasting, Etc.
I run the Ingersorand 30 gallon tank with a 13HP Honda, I operate everything mentioned above except a Jack hammer and operating a sandblaster is limited so I hook into the compressor on my other truck and use both compressors and I have steady air.
Most plasma uses round 4-6 scfm@90 psi and your air tools( besides a sander) use round 3-4. You also need to think if you need portability or just in your garage. Gas powered comps are a bit more than elec power ones( a lot more really). CampbellHaus has a 60gal/230v at 10.2 @90 for $470ish and IR has a 8gal/gas at 11.8@90 for$999. This is at my Tractor Supply.
