What do you mean, has had petrol? Has petrol been added to the fuel? If so how much when and what was done about it?

Was it driven with the petrol, if so how far? You may have damaged an injector or the pump.

Some kilometers
sent injectors for testing, checked out ok
pump appears to work ok, until going into limp mode

I would be suspecting a pump problem, the diesel is the lubricant for the pump, petrol is very dry, you may have damaged the pump internally, regardless the pump should be checked over.
