Good morning, I hope I can help you.

 

You can remove the pipe to the fuel filter and then run a supply voltage to the fuel pump to pump the fuel out or you can remove the fuel pump from the tank and siphon it out.

 

As its only 7 litres you have put in you could also just fill the tank to maximum and dilute it. You then just keep adding diesel every 50 miles or so.
