Poss the fuel filter has petrol in it,replace filter,turn engine over with fuel line unattached to clear lines then fire up,should be fine.you may hve a hot start problem for awhile but fill up with diesel at 1/2 tank to dilute any petrol left.in 32 years in the trade i have put petrol in so many diesel cars,and as long as it starts,keep it running,and start only when cold ish.

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.
