I bought a PRO 100 6 months ago from a fellow who got it in a camera package - he only printer 2 8X10's with it. When I got it home the tanks showed about 90% full.
Then I ran 9 - 8X10's and several of the tanks dropped to 20% (replaced them).
Note: after the above I have left the printer 'ON'
Since then I have made 7 - 8X10 and fout tanks ran out.
So I have set of 4 coming Monday.
Is this typical?
My views is: 16 prints and tanks are empty. I can't afford to runs this printer if it consumes this much ink.
Maybe I have some settings wwrong?

Not typical for me. How frequently are you shutting down and restarting printer?
I would give Canon a call at 1-800-OK-CANON and chat with them.

I have had it for 6 months - during the first 5 I shut is down after each session (then stated uo 2-3 weeks later). For the past month I have been leaving it on. No real difference in the past month printed about 7 8X10 and the cartriges drained done 65%. I have a complete set of cartriges coming monday.

I visited my local STAPLES store where i talked to a tech who I know and trust:
He said: your ink usage is typical, try printing on standard resoltion instead of high - that should help.
I will give it a try

Here's a test run by Red Rver Paper.
Looks like about 20 8x10 per cartridge.
