I put gas into my diesel truck

last weekend I went to the baja 250 in san felipe, mexico before I came home I stoped at a pemex station and they have diesel and gas at the same pump but over there the gas hose is green and the diesel hose is black I wasn't paying attion and put gas in my tank instead of diesel I had 1/4 tank of diesel and filled up the rest with gas,a local man helped me take out 3/4 of the diesel and gas mix, I filled up the tank this time with diesel and added 2 quarts of motor oil it ran good all the way home I couldn't tell the difference i'ved used 1/2 tank. Can any harm come from this?

Gasoline barely has the BTU's to fire a diesel. You're good to go with the steps already taken.

I would be putting a fuel additive ( for lubricqtion of fuel pump) in it and adding diesel asap. Don't wait on this....
