I'm a bit confused. Which one is correct? or when can I use which?

 

"I don't know how far I can go." vs. "I don't know how far can I go."

To make a statement, the subject goes before the verb. 

 

I can go.

 

To ask a question, the verb goes before the subject. 

 

Can I go?

 

You are making a statement ("I don't know"), so the first one is correct.  If you wanted to ask a question, the second one would be correct if you delete the first three word: "How far can I go?"
