    And yesterday, one of the less experienced group on our boat came back with 300 psi that is not much at all!

    Yeah, that's very little. I bet they hadn't been down that long either. Depending on the dive and kit config, I'm happy to come back with less than 50 bar. If the last bit of the dive is in 5m off the beach, I really don't need that much. Or if I've got twin 12s, then 50 bar is actually a lot of gas. If I'm coming out of an overhead environment, I like to have more than a third left.
