    Every time you turn your printer on, it uses ink to initialise the
    heads. So you use colour ink for that all the time. Printing in
    grayscale where the printer drivers are set to grayscale should only
    use black ink, but if the grayscale is done elsewhere rather than in
    the drivers, it could be using colour ink.

    Does on all printers, and if you have off brand inks and dont have the
    profile for them you get rainbow effects instead of a gradient. Same as
    having the wrong paper selected.

    There are some nice inksets that replace them with some greys that do a
    good job that I have seen done on a friends printer and there was no
    coloured haze over it...
