An inflator (40) for inflating an inflatable vehicle occupant protection device (14) includes structure that defines a chamber (220) and inflation fluid stored in the chamber. The inflation fluid includes in mixture a fuel gas, an oxidizer gas, and an inert gas mixture. The inflator (40) also includes an actuator for initiating a combustion reaction between the fuel gas and the oxidizer gas. The inert gas mixture includes at least two different inert gases and has a composition selected to produce desired performance characteristics of the inflator (40).
Having described the invention, we claim the following: 1. An inflator for inflating an inflatable vehicle occupant protection device, said inflator comprising: structure defining a chamber; inflation fluid stored in said chamber, said inflation fluid comprising in mixture a fuel gas, an oxidizer gas, and an inert gas mixture; and actuatable means for initiating a combustion reaction between said fuel gas and said oxidizer gas; said inert gas mixture comprising at least two different inert gases and having a composition selected to produce desired perfo...
