What damage is caused by petrol in a diesel engine?

Serious damage. Any diesel mechanic, would recommend draining the entire fuel system and re-filling it with pure diesel. I do know some guys that add a gallon or two of gasoline to their diesel trucks, meaning big rig semi's, in the winter for easier starting, however their truck's fuel tanks have a 50 gallon capacity. Diesel is a lubricant as well as a fuel. Running gasoline, or a high mixture of gasoline WILL cause SERIOUS damage to a diesel engine, so remove all the gas immediately.

What damage could be done to a diesel engine if four liters of unleaded petrol was accidentally added to 40 liters of diesel?

Shouldn't cause any damage! Adding 10% of petrol to diesel fuel was standard practice in sub-zero winters in the days before "winter-grade" diesel. It helps prevent "waxing" where the diesel fuel will turn into something like a soft candle wax at low temperatures. You may notice a slight loss of power until the petrol is out of the system. 4 litres in 40 litres of diesel should not damage your engine, the one thing it will do is give you MORE power as it works a little like a bottle of injector cleaner that you may add to a tank of diesel from time to time. It will cause higher temperature explosions in your combustion chambers and a little more power.

In small amounts diesel will not affect operation, but eventually as the mixture becomes more diesel than gas it will not burn in a gasoline car, and will damage a diesel vehicle. If you have mixed more than 5% diesel with your gas you should probably drain and start over to avoid damage.
