    Canon in general, waste more ink than most others , by a huuuuuge margin . So bad I threw mine in the trash even though it was 2 years old & still working .
    Consumer magazine tested ink wasted on quite a few (then) current printers , the differences were an eye opener . I bought a replacement inkjet printer that had very low ink wastage based on
    those tests


    Leaving it on didnt/doesnt help
    if it hasnt printed for a week or so it may spend 2 minutes cleaning (wasting ink) before printing your single page.
    I went from Canon to Epsom . The Epson's inks lasted 9+ months on the original low capacity ink carts, plus my newer Epson prints almost instantly rather than waiting 2 minutes that the canon used to take in cleaning before printing.

    Canon inkjets didnt used to be this bad in years past, Ive owned a few over the past 15 years. Never again.

    Cos I have a LOT of yellow print and a fair amount of Green to do.

    The more ink cartridges, saves ink. If you print a lot of garden photographs it uses more greens right or if no green cartridge it's a mix of the 2 or so ... and it uses less red for eg..

    The more advanced printers for exhibition work comes in 8 or more cartridges. Better quality also. Inkjets can be better quality than lab prints unless you use a pro lab and use their giant inkjets or their more pro printers.

    available now. Ecotank & megatank.
    They arnt cheap. Unless doing alot of prints , Id rather spend my cash on something cheaper

    You can even get kits to convert inkjets to external large inktanks. If you dont mind the risk of a inktank leaking onto your floor
