Question
Hi Matt,
I have several Canon printers ip1600, ip1700 & ip1800 that uses ink cartridges 30/31/40/41, is it true that the 30/31 holds less ink ?
---

Answer
Hi John,

Thank you for the message, that is certainly the case. Whilst Canon aren't too open about the exact difference in terms of the ml of ink between the 2 cartridges, the PG-40 and CL-41 cartridges are indeed higher capacity cartridges. You'd probably expect to have in the region of 50% more ink in the PG-40 and CL-41 and its usually for only a few dollars extra, so it is definitely worth the investment in the larger cartridges.

I hope this helps.
