If the tank only holds 295 ml, there is not enough developer available to do the job, even though the ratio of what's there is 1:3.

To the OP, what are you looking to accomplish with the 1:3 dilution?
Who says 250ml is the minimum amount of neat developer needed to develop one 35mm film. That would imply that I need 500ml of final working solution to develop at 1:1, which I don't.
