I have now started the fading test of the Canon OEM bottled inks in comparison with other inks. See this.

As the Canon G-series printers use print heads that are modified combined print head/sponge cartridges, I think the bottled Canon inks are very good refill inks for the Canon 2 cartridge printers. I will also test that.

Hey Guys,
A little advice please if thats ok.
I have the OEM refill kit from octoinkjet.com for the IP8750 and all is good.

Question.
I have got a lot of genuine bottled epson 102 ink , Black, Cyan, Magenta, Yellow.
Is this ok to use in the equivalent refill cartridges i have. ?

i know i need grey and 550 pigment black as well, just wondered if it would be a good idea, being genuine ink ?

Thanks
Si

Don't do it. Ink for Epson printers, genuine or not, is not suitable for use in a Canon printer. Epson and Canon use different printhead technologies, and different ink properties are needed for the two printer brands.
