Just keep topping it up to max with Diesel and should be fine.

Taxi is right, nothing to worry about with such a small amount.
*I did it too*

If it were Diesel into Petrol then it a different story, tank has to be drained and cleaned out.
My mate filled his Petrol Picasso with Diesel and discovered that there is a safety cut off fitted to Citroens that prevents engine damage if wrong fuel detected.

I heard of a Partner that was filled 75% with petrol. It did not like starting and low RPM but once it was reving it was ok. Would not start one morning but " Breakdown Service " bled it and it started. they never noticed it was a diesel with petrol in it ! Just kept filling with diesel and eventually it was to all appearances normal. :whistle:
The main problem with petrol in diesel is Diesel Fuel lubricates the pump, pump valves and injectors, petrol washes away that lubrication accelerating wear and making them run hotter. petrol can also damage seals which may be incompatible, the same applies to some " alternative " diesel fuels
Different manufacturers quote different acceptable diesel /petrol ratios.
Petrol does not float on diesel despite being less dense, it mixes.
A small amount should have negligible effect just keep topping up with diesel to reduce ratio as quick as possible. Smile
