we cant change our breathing without it becoming uncomfortable so the best option is to go up to a 15ltr tank problem sorted.

before adjusting the way you bread I'd consider checking the way you move/swim in the water, how relax/exited you are during a dive ( I used to spend 50bar in my first 10min), your diving position (the more vertical the more water resistant), your buoynacy & weigth setup. If this doesn't help Yoga might be the solution, it will help correct breathing defects and keep you fit therefore improve your consumption.
