iirc a n/a car should beable to go for 50 miles normal driving, but not recommended.
TheJesus said:my oil pump failed on my Williams and I idle'd it off the motorway, coasted round the RA and in total did about 500m since the warning light came on... result was a new bottom end... so really it can be 5 meters or 5 miles, you never know, but tbh expect the worse I'm sorry to say.

Generally speaking if the lights on, it's too late
Fill it up now, as in don't drive anywhere, get some oil and put it in!
Chances are it will be ok for a bit, but I would not chance it another 10 foot.
