I just went to the garage and transfilled air from a 3000 psi tank into an empty 6cf pony bottle at the highest rate I dared. Result: the pony bottle got noticeably warmer (but not hot).

I believe the results of this extremely non-scientific test are supported by the first law of thermodynamics, but I defer to those trained in the physical sciences.
