With care. The mechanics are interesting. I recently flushed out an old 25 litre drum of hydraulic oil using unleaded petrol. I put in a pint, flushed with the cap on tight, and the pressure rise was massive. The cap blew right off as I released it. Same is true, to a lesser extent as you mix with diesel.

What happens when you put diesel in hydraulic tank?

Depends on the amount, and the type of hydraulic fluid already in there. If the diesel blends with hydraulic and is a small amount to the whole volume, then it's no problem. If the diesel doesn't blend, if it curdles or something them you need to drain the lot. If it's a lot of diesel to a small amount of hydraulic pumps and motors might seize, as diesel is a rather poor lubricant. Diesel is also likely to be runnier than the hydraulic fluid, which is likely to reduce the performance of the system.
