Default what happens when co2 runs out?

when i run out of co2 will i just not be able to push beer or will it go flat or will o2 start to enter the keg? i imagine it will jsut stop being able to push the beer which i can live with (for a short while) but just in case i thought i would ask

Assuming there are no leaks in the kegs, it just won't dispense the beer. If there are leaks, the beer could go flat over time. I wouldn't worry about o2 getting in though.

dude, you beer goes bad in a day or two. you better drink it all within 24 hours. this can be a problem if you just started a new keg or two. in these emergency situation i usually offer my beer disposal services for a small fee. if you're a good guy, i could do it pro bono. its a tough job. but i gotta make a living.
