How Much Ink in Canon 3e Cartridge,

I want to start refilling my Canon 3e cartridges. MIS ink was recommended
to me. They have the ink in 2oz bottles, 4oz bottles, and larger. I was
unable to figure out the ink content of a Canon 3e cartridge. Basically, if
I buy the 4oz bottles, how many times can I refill the cartridge? Thank you
very much.

I think you will find that messy. If you are bent on taking a risk on
your printhead and reduced quality then I would call every relabelr you
can and ask them if they sell carts with formulabs ink but ask them if
they publicise it on the web or on the package contents. You then have
a better chance they are being honest with you.

It depends on the tank, but generally a refill when just the tank side is
empty will run around 8ml.

( 1 oz = 30 ml)

Keep in mind that most tanks will start to show signs of age after 4-6
fills.

Which printer? bci3-ebk (large carts)? 3e carts from a very old generation
Canon printer? 3e, comparable to the bci-6 carts?

When that happens I flush and backflush them for reuse.

TMK, with the exceptino of the 3e-BK cart, they are about 13 ml, the eBk
about 26. I think a 2 oz bottle is 60 ml.

If you're referring to the large BCI-3e text black cartridge, I don't
bother with little 2oz/4oz bottles, preferring instead the 8oz ones.
It's also considerably cheaper as they give you more ink for your money.

The best black text ink (BCI-3e) that I recommend is from
atlanticinkjet.com (separate US/Canadian divisions). It is true pigment
black, prints every bit as good as original Canon ink. A large 8oz
bottle costs $15 and will fill anywhere from 16 to 25 cartridges. Who
knows exactly how many. The cost is so low I don't keep track of these
trivial things.

Be careful as some generic BCI-3e ink sold is dye ink and not pigment.
It must be pigment (like original Canon) or your text will be fuzzy
instead of laser sharp, and it will also be not near waterproof like the
real pigment ink. Dye ink will run terribly if paper is splashed with
water. Now you know how to test the black ink you're getting.
