Wow, that's why the pumps at the stations have different colors. It can be fixed, but, you'll have to take your car to the shop. Your fuel lines and gas tank has to be cleaned out. May cost several hundred dollars. I'm sure that you won't make that mistake again.

Diesel fuel is like an oil. Your entire fuel system will need to be cleaned out. As Mark said above, you're looking at a large repair bill! HTH. - Jim

Ditto on those guys answers. No need to flog you anymore, I really believe you learned a lesson albeit an expensive one.

Drain the tank and fuel lines, replace the fuel filter and you are all set.
