    What really needs to happen is drain the fuel out of the tank. Flush the fuel lines change the filter.

    and fill up with diesel again.

    chances are you may think it runs ok ish. But you risk premature wear to fuel pump and injectors by running it.

    Add some two-stroke oil to the tank (about 500ml) to aid lubrication of the pump etc.
