Hello and Welcome! I'm Billy and i will assist you with your inquiry. Feel free to ask if any further info is needed.
My apologies for the delay, thank you for your patience.
Around 10% of petrol with the diesel will not cause any harm.
However, you have more like 20% of petrol within the tank. Most likely, this will not cause any damage (some hesitation maybe, till the tank is empty).
To be on the safe side, i would empty the tank, and then fill half of it with clean diesel, and add the other half from the mixture you just emptied. This way, we will be sure that nothing is wasted, and will have nothing to worry about.
Kindly get back to me if further assistance is needed.
