The car should be OK if you can get enough of the Diesel out of the gas tank. The Diesel won't really hurt anything but it won't burn in a gasoline engine. Whether you can drive the car depends on what percentage of fuel is Diesel. You may have to get the tank drained but don't worry about the engine.
