brain Flatulence; put gas in diesel tank

Well, almost. I was towing an 18' X 8' dual axle full of my daughter's life from NC to the big apple and I had to use the restroom. I pulled into the gas station, swiped the card, and inserted the "green" nozzle into the tank, said to her, "here fillerup", and double timed it to the rr.

I came back and she said; "Dad, this didn't look right so I didn't pump it." The green was one of three, BUT it was just 93 octane gasoline, wtf.

GREAT KID and smart as all get out!

I read on another forum that I frequent, about modern muskets, that another guy had done this and his friend, a mechanic, told him to add 2 qts of ATF and one of 30 weight in the tank and good to go.

Is there any validity to this?
Are there other recipes?

Happened to me during the rally in Sturgis. They were changing the pump to unleaded, but it still read Diesel. Anyway about thirty miles later starts running rough and pumping out white smoke. Called the mechanic from a friends house. Said drain the tank and the fuel bowl. Added two cans of Sea Foam and another lubricant and filled back up with Diesel. Was lucky, no issues...
