I'm afraid you need to clean the whole system out. This is a job for a garage as they have to drain the fuel tank and clean it out. Then they have to flush the fuel lines all the way to the injectors and finally change the fuel filter(s). Diesel fuel is not the same as gasoline and works completely differently. They don't "mix". Sorry.
