Hi..

Hopefully i can help..

1 litre in 80 litres of diesel should be ok since the ratio of diesel against the petrol is greater..you need to run the tank to about halfway or slightly lower then retop the tank up so your continually diluting the petrol down or burning it off - ensure your when you top up again you add a diesel injector clear too..but normally that small amount of petrol against the amount of diesel shouldnt really cause any harm..as long as you keep a monitor on the situation you should be fine as long as you do the above..I do hope this helps
