With only a gallon of diesel in the system if you continue to dilute it by topping up with petrol, you might get away with it, tho it will probably be smoky for some time....as effectively the diesel won't be burnt, just blown out as unburnt fuel.....not sure what it will do to the lambda sensor and the cat, mind you.
Standard advice is not to stasrt the engine as soon as you've realised the error and to drain the tank before it is run, thereby preventing the diesel being drawn into the fuel system - but of course its too late for that....
