My 16 year old daughter inadvertantly tried to fill her 1997 4 cylinder GMC grand am with diesel fuel. She said she didnt think any got into the tank. The pump registered.12 cents. She then filled the tank with gasoline. Should I add an additive to the tank just in case some diesel fuel got into the gas tank?

The car will still run. Diesel and gasoline are brothers. The diesel should have no trouble mixing and being thoroughly diluted by the gasoline, and if she filled the tank entirely she might not even notice anything.
