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. If you put allot and the engine will not run then you will need to drain the tank, replace the fuel filter, blow out the lines, and fill the tank with gas.

Iodine in a gas tank will run the engine. It will cause rust, and will corrode the engine to the point that the engine will seize.

Yes, but you can go to a gas station and refill your tank.

The sensor in your gas tank may have malfunctioned. You can purchase a new tank so your won't run out of gas while driving.

Personally if you can't siphon out all the liquid out of the tank I would just fill up the tank with gas and let it run.
