In my opinion the 30 or 31 gauge needle is to thin fo Autoject and bounces off the tunica. I had bad luck with them.

I never found 30 gauge needle in 5/16” length so I buy 1/2” needles and set my Ahtoject at 5/16” depth. Haven’t failed in a long time and virtually painless.

I did not use 1/2" long needle the first time i used the autoject and my next injection will try that. the 2 manual injections I did were both with 1/2" 29G 1ml needle. I know others use this with success my question is could the needle not penetrate the area it needs to with the autoject?

any ideas or suggestions would be appreciated

Why did you switch from manual in the first place?
I use an injector that you still have to press down on plunger to inject.
