I have had a diagnostics test and I came back "number one piston misfire". Am I able to still drive the car for approx. 60 miles?

Do you
have the same problem?

You can try, but it won't run very good. It may also overheat. If it is a dead miss, too much fuel may get into the exhaust system and damage the catalytic converter. If it was mine, I wouldn't try it.
