You have got to be very cautious with relying upon ink meters to provide
accurate ink consumption values. They are notoriously inaccurate and can have
error ranges up to 20%. The best method to use when it comes to determining
exactly how much ink is consumed during a stack test or other compliance
demonstrations is to weigh the ink.
