    No.

    Air is mostly nitrogen (78%), entirely different than CO2. Compressed air, while it may work, is not what that tank was designed for.

    The internal pressures of the tank can be deadly, and tampering with something like this could be potentially fatal. Only use it for what it was designed for - CO2. Take it somewhere and get it filled.

    No. Your small electric pump probably doesn't pump more than 50 psi. A co2 tank is capable of containing hundreds or even thousands of pounds of gas/air per square inch. Also, a tire pump only pumps air, not co2.

    No even if it was hpa you would not be able to fill the tank because of the pressure needed to fill a paintball tank.
