Yes, CO2 is a flammable as N2. Both are considered non-flammable. For that matter, both are used to suppress fire in one way or another.
And this is why you have to be extremely careful around either of them. Basically, our body oxidizes food using the O2 from the atmosphere. In essence, we are doing a "slow burn" in order to live. N2 and CO2 have a tendency to displace the O2 in the atmosphere, thus preventing our slow burn. No O2, no life. Hard to enjoy a nice paint job in that state.
Maybe you are thinking of H2 (the gas, not the vehicle). Think Hindenburg.
