I would give the station an opportunity to fix it before I'd sue.

Do not panic. It is customary to put gasoline in diesel's in extreme cold weather to help thin out the paraffin in the diesel fuel, it did not damage the engine in anyway, the only symptoms would be loss of power which is to be expected
