High levels of oxygen can cause otherwise inflammable materials to spontaneously ignite.

CO2 chokes (retards) the flame in relatively small amounts , the two together would ???
There would need to be some happy medium

In effect you are building a rocket or welder the two gases are moderately expensive and onboard production would be $$$ and heavy, likely power intensive as welll.
