Has anyone had such an issue with gas?
Yes, but it happens soooooo rarely that one will typically think the problem is everything else and piss waste time doing so.

I fought for a full day cleaning my whip, gun and changing everything I had in spares, finally giving up and using a smaller machine that welded just fine using the same wire that would not run on the other. Swapped bottles and shazam, dammit.

Of course, in my case had I acted on the "last one in, first one out" of detective work, I'd of been ok. sigh

Today you'll find me with two small bottles of gas for steel that I own and another large beast that I rent. Things are/should be much simpler now, but I'm sure I'll do the dance all over again.
