Disconnected MAF

So, thanks to the help of everyone on alfaowner.com, I've successfully diagnosed my cars problems... simply by disconnecting the ol MAF. Now, I was wondering, cause I just want to drive my car aimlessly for as long as possible, how important is it that I stay off the road as much as possible until i get a new MAF part. Should i definitely not be driving it if i don't have to or is it okay to take it our for the occasional spin while i wait for the new part? Haven't really found a solid definitive answer for this in the threads yet.

maf fine tunes the air fuel mixture so should be OK for the odd spin as ecu has basic map.

Will probably use a bit more fuel but it is a lot safer than driving around with a faulty MAF.

Just fitted a new MAF to mine and got an extra 35 miles from half a tank!
Worth changing the part on fuel saving costs
