Set your welder for the thicker metal, annd then when you weld it, concentrate more of the weld on the thicker plate so as not to burn through the lighter guage stuff.
A very common mistake made is to set the machine for the lighter of the 2 materials which leads to cold-lap or non fusion in the joint.
