Default What happens when Honda Civic Hybrid out of gas?

What happens when Honda Civic Hybrid runs out of gas? Will it limp along on electric, shut down, or mantain full electric driving capibility?The fuel pump wouldn't be damaged as it would be shutdown during the electric mode. The pump doesn't run during electric mode in this car. A Feature of progressive engineering.

No matter what it does, it will damage the fuel pump, and result in a costly repair, maybe not the first time, but after once or twice. And I believe the car would probably stop running, just like a regular car, but thats a guess based on the fact that the battery is really just a supplement to the gas engine

I'm pretty sure that the only time the car runs on electric is when its idling. So I think it would shut down like a regular car would.

It will run until the electric motor runs out of charge. Also, while its running on electric only, it will not generate as much speed as well.
