You guys are both right - but you're talking about different things.

The relationship between plate displacement and plunger displacement
is linear.

The relationship between air volume and plate displacement is _NOT_
linear and is governed by a whole shitload of factors including
funnel shape, air viscosity, etc.

Changing the funnel shape is one of the options.
