To be safe, I would flush it all out. Diesel is not only a fuel, but a lubricant that lubricates all high pressure diesel components.

A mixture of petrol (gasoline) & diesel will make the fuel thinner, which will affect its lubrication ability. Not able to withstand
the high pressures that components put it under, can cause those components to wear.

I would recommend that the fuel be removed and a new filter added as the last poster suggested this is not good for the injection pump or the injectors, if it was my car I would not leave the petrol mixed in the tank I would be getting it drained and a new filter.
