I Think you have other problems. Change the fuel filter and if that doesn't do it take it to a garage.

You purchase a gasoline can and a funnel. Fill the gasoline can with fuel from your local gasoline station. Pour it into your vehicles tank using the funnel. Cycle the ignition key on and off several times pausing breifly for a few seconds when in the on position, this will prime the system, then start it up.

No, the engine will just not run or run poorly and smoke depending on how much diesel is in the tank. If you put very little just keep driving and fill the tank up with gas when you have 1/2 tank.

Does parking on a slope affect gas?

If you keep an almost empty gas tank, residue can build up and clog up your gas tank. Other than that, a parked car doesn't use gas, unless your car is left idleing, (with an almost empty tank). Then, the gas stays in the back part of the tank and the gas could'nt get to the carburator, so the car would, in effect, run out off gas.
