    i got a canon i470d awhile ago. and this thing goes through ink so damn fast. like...i've printed less than 100 pages on this ink cartridge, and it's 67% gone already! dammit. am i supposed to shake some ink to the bottom of the cartridge before putting the ink cartridge in?

    edit: im also printing on draft, which should save some ink

    How long does it say a cartridge is supposed to last? At the rate you're using yours, it would last about 300 pages, which doesn't sound unreasonable to me for an inkjet cartridge.

    Check your print quality settings. If it's printing at "best" it'll go through ink like crazy.
