I saw something similar on Youtube about this, I don't know what make or model printer it was, but they removed the colour ink tank and filled the black ink tank with stencil ink and set the printing properties to Greyscale printing....they then said that both colour and black ink tanks can filled and you don't need to change the printing properties, so I really don't know why you would only fill the black tank and have to change settings.
I know that with normal inkjet printing you need the colour tank to be installed even if you are printing greyscale, some of the lighter shades need the colour ink, so would assume that stencil printing would require both tanks to have stencil ink.
Personally I would experiment and fill the black tank with stencil ink, remove the colour tank and then do a test print in greyscale. if that doesnt work, fill the colour tank and replace it and print in greyscale, then reset settings to normal and try that. See what works. I don't think it will use much ink and only 3 pieces of paper but at least you will know.

And then let us know

I don't use an Eco printer, but I have seen Youtube videos about them....they remove the top off the ink tanks and pour out the existing ink and then wash out residual ink from the tank and filter pad then refill with stencil ink....you will lose the original ink, but that's an expense you will have to bear .......search on the internet (youtube) for videos
