Air at High Pressure

Hi Dear fellows
I am trying to model the Air Reducer/Pressure Reducer in Fluent. The Inlet pressure is 250 bars and mass flow rate is 0.36 kg/s. The desired outlet pressure is around 8-9 bars.
I am using Pressure inlet boundary condition @inlet and Mass flow inlet boundary condition @outlet(with appropriate direction vectors so that mass flow out from the outlet).
Since air is compressed at high pressure of 250 bars so Ideal gas model cannot be used. I have read that due to high variation of temperature from inlet to outlet Peng-Robinson Real Gas model should be used instead. But when I set this model in the materials panel for air and compute Reference values from the Inlet boundary, the density reported is very very less i.e of the orders of 10^-5. In actual scenario the density is high(around 300 kg/m^3) due to high pressure at which the air is stored in air bottles.
I don't know what mistake I am making....if any body has done such problem or has handled air at high pressures or used real gas models for air in Fluent kindly help me.
Thanks in advance.
