What exactly are you saying - that the cartridge runs out whileubdicating there is still 25% ink remaining, or that the low on ink indicator indicates the ink is low but there is actually 25% remaining?
I suspect the latter - the ink indicator lets you know when the ink is getting low so you can have time to have a replacement on hand. You can continue to print until the cartridge actually runs out, see the document here which says:
"NOTE: Ink level warnings and indicators provide estimates for planning purposes only. When an indicator shows low ink levels, consider having a replacement cartridge available to avoid possible printing delays. You do not need to replace cartridges until prompted to do so."

With 25% showing on the program indicator and the cartridge actually having a lot of ink, the printer stops using that particular color and I have to throw cartridges with approximately 25% of the ink remaining away.
