We study the Prime Graph Question for integral group rings. This question can be reduced to almost simple groups by a result of Kimmerle and Konovalov. We prove that the Prime Graph Question has an affirmative answer for all almost simple groups having a socle isomorphic to PSL(2,pf) for f≤2, establishing the Prime Graph Question for all groups where the only non-abelian composition factors are of the aforementioned form. Using this, we determine exactly how far the so-called HeLP method can take us for (almost simple) groups having an order divisible by at most four different primes.
