That actually isn't as bad as you think. Diesel is much more resistant to pre-detonation and has more BTUs per gallon then gasoline, as long as you don't overdo it. A buddy of mine accidentally topped off the tank on his 84 F250 with diesel one day at the shop and it ran really good, better mileage then ever, found about 3 gallons of diesel per tank when filling up from empty gave him the best bang. Though I wouldn't recommend it on a more modern vehicle with fuel injection or emissions equipment or a body that is less than 60% rust.
Now gas in a diesel that is another story of woe altogether.
Diesel itself has a fair amount of lubricant qualities...
Mixing it in fuel is about the same as some people who run Marvel Mystery Oil in their fuel. Some people even add a small bottle of 2 cycle oil to their tank.
I think there was even a thread on here at one point about it.
