Increased CFM

Nope.

What it will do is give you more air to use before you run out.

If your air compressor cannot deliver the flow of air your air tool needs, and you need that air tool to run consistently (as in you are earning money with it) and you are running out of air now, another tank will help a bit, but then you will have to wait longer for both tanks to fill.

See the pages on sizing a compressor for more info.
