The driver is the problem, maybe.

has anyone tested Paul Roark's carbon inks on an Epson EcoTank ET-8550?
Where to buy in Europe (not from the UK)?

A European alternative similar to Paul's method:

Does anyone use these inks, on the Epson EcoTank ET-8550 or another printer?

AFAIK, the only practical way to use a B&W inkset in a color printer is to use a RIP instead of the regular printer driver. AFAIK the only not-very-expense option for that is QuadToneRIP. But QTR does not support the ET-8550; see:

But that makes me wonder about what you linked to. Look into how it works, and how much special software / procedures are required. They seem to say none, but I'm skeptical of how satisfactory that would be. But maybe somebody can educate me.
