You should be able to safely remove the diesel by siphoning the diesel out and adding the Lucas treatment with filling the tank up with gasoline and running a tank of regular gas through it. It may be hard to start initially as the diesel can cause some problems with starting in a regular gas engine due to the oil content. If that does not work, you may need to have a professional come to your location to flush the diesel entirely out of the system to get the car running again.
