1998 Mazda 626 mileage: 142,000. What exactly do I do to fix the car if someone accidentally put diesel instead of gas in the tank and drove a couple miles until it stopped? Where is the fuel filter?

The fuel filter is probably in the rear of the car by the fuel tank. Now, on to the diesel problem. Remove as much diesel fuel as possible from the gas tank and refill it with gasoline. You may have to crank the car to purge the diesel fuel out of the fuel lines. After that, it should start and run okay and there shouldn't be any damage to the engine from the diesel fuel.
