I was running low on gas and it was midnight, so I went to a gas station that I never been to before and used my debit card to pay at the pump and I picked up the regular nozzle and pushed the button but nothing happened so I put the nozzle back and picked up the diesel nozzle and pushed the button and the pump started working so I put diesel in it by accident and it was about 2 gallons worth and I drove over 20 miles, so I just burn out the gas and then put regular gas?

Do you
have the same problem?

If the ratio of diesel is too much, the engine should be running erratically and there would be a lot of smoke from exhaust.

You can do as you mentioned but I would fill up the tank with gas to dilute the diesel if it is driveable.
