Often farther and further are used interchangeably, but there is a difference. Use farther to discuss physical distances. A case in point is as follows: "If you park at this end of the lot, we will have to walk farther."
Further can be used for figurative distances, such as a spiritual or intellectual journey. For instance, "That information is wrong, and couldn't be further than the truth." Further also can be used as an adverb that translates to additionally. For example, "The defense has no further questions." Moveover, further can be used as a verb that means to advance. For instance: "Learning a new skill will further my career."
When you are still unsure which to use, perhaps while discussing a speech or how far into a book you have read, further is the prudent choice. Also, if you are in Great Britain, farther is barely used!
