Farther vs. Further
Farther and farthest are used to refer to a greater physical distance. Further and furthest refer to a greater degree or other non-distance quantity. It’s more noticeable when farther is used incorrectly, but further should not be used exclusively.


Examples:

*Note* How much farther do we have to travel?
*Note* What further evidence do you need?
*Note* Neptune is always the planet farthest from the Sun now that Pluto has been demoted.
*Note* That’s the furthest thing from my mind.
