Get a hose and siphon out until empty, diesels can run if you have a little gas in it but too much is not a good thing obviously.

Drain Diesel from gas tank


No easy way, if you can get an electric pump, or a pump attachment for a power drill. Remove the fuel line, either at the fuel filter or the fuel rail, connect the pump with a bridging piece of hose, and let the pump do the work. Refill with a couple of gallons of petrol. Vehicle might smoke a little till all traces of diesel are gone. Diesel in petrol is not as bad as petrol in diesel. As you did not run the engine very little diesel will get up to the engine. Good Luck.

I mistakingly put some diesel in my petrol swift


You don't say how much diesel you put in or how much petrol was in tank in the first place. If the amount of diesel is less than 5 % of the total then you may try filling tank with petrol and keep topping up to dilute the diesel. The best fix would be to drain fuel tank completly and refill with petrol. If tank has a drainplug , this will be easy but if no drain plug you will have to remove tank from vehicle to empty it.

Any notorious computer problems?


Nope, it is a pretty robust system in petrol or diesel.

The diesel models occaisionally have in tank pump failure

The petrol models suffer greatly with Lambda sensors

Otherwise one tough car, great long distance cruiser
