Similarly 6 years ago connected my Canon iP4200 with large external 
tanks (200-300ml!) and silicon tubing into the cartridges and enjoy Very 
Low cost printing now.  The only colour printer I can truly claim to 
have got my money's worth out of.  However the colour balance is not 
good through CUPS, and I am not clever enough to fix that, but that is 
another thread.

Certainly also investigate alternative ink supplies if you are looking 
at another printer of any branding.  HR!
