Brakes lock up

I test drove a 92 Ford Tarus, after 30mi or so smoke started comming from around the tires {Front Only}, I figured it was the Brakes...
I also notices that the Car wanted to keep going even at a Stop sign....?
I Put $5.00 gas in it, was on empty.. When I got back to the dealer {Smoke comminmg from inside the Front Tires and all} it needed Gas., 6Cyl I think.
Question: Is their a relief valve or something to release the "Brake Lock"? and is their an Idle adjustment to reduce the engine speed so it wont keep trying to go at a Stop sign?
I would also like to know if one of you experts might know why it used $5.00 Gas on a 10 - 12 mile test drive... Thankx.
Note: I hear VBLOG is a Money Maker...
