as I stated earlier,
drain the tank, then PURGE THE LINE BEFORE AND AFTER THE FILTER, CHANGE THE FILTER, this is very important!! then purge the lines to the rack and injectors, until clear diesel comes out.
rule of thumb, tank to injectors PURGE ALL and change the filter!! BTW I will make a guess as to the dealer LABOR charge not including tow,
4 hours at their rate ($75 to $150 per) give or take an hour depending on your location... if they are at it more then 4 hours then they havent a clue to what they are doing. and they may charge a "disposal" fee for the contents of the tank... an expensive lesson.
last summer i had a TDI VW belonging to a friend who had gas in his diesel, dealer charged him $800 , had it for 2 days and a AAA tow which for him free.
the second time it happened a WEEK LATER i did it for him in 2 hours only because i had to find the right filter ...and a large enough container for the tank contents.. i found a DIESEL ONLY sticker in very large letters which i gave him for his birthday which is now on his car just above the fuel door. the contents we used on a large brush/ stump burn and practice for the local fire dept.
good luck! steveg
