    Depends how much gas you put in and how much diesel was in the tanks to start with. Did it start running bad or how did you realize your mistake?

    It was about 50 gallons of diesel in it already and I noticed it by driving it a few miles started slightly running rough and got it towed

    How much metal escaped the motor before you got towed?

    You could get lucky and be "ok", or you may need internal motor work.
