If the internal combustion engine fails or the Prius runs out of gas, is
it capable of moving at slow speeds to a safe location? If so, about

I was able to drive about 1 mile at normal in town speeds (30-45) when
I ran out of gas. My level was about 3 bars short of full. After
filling up it started right up with no problems.
