Ink running out really fast?



This is my first printer so I'm not sure how ink works.  However, after printing about 6 pages full text, my ink cartridge is about half empty.  Should ink be running out this fast?  I have a Canon MX492 and I'm using the PG-245 ink cartidges that came with the printer (since it is new).


Thank you in advance!

Thank you! Apparently the ink that comes with the new printer doesn't have a very long life.
