Supercharger and Regular gas mistake

I let my father in law borrow my SC 2015 tundra and after my girl friend told him to put in premium he just told me he filled with regular because the gas station only had supreme and not premium... 17 gallons worth what are possible consequences and what do I need to do to avoid consequences of regular grade fuel. Is it ok since its a one time occurence? Should I add any chevron additive to the fuel or is that not an option since the tank is already full or would that not help any?

Thanks

Drain the tank and refill. Predetonation can kill your engine

An engine costs more than my time and fuel...

I second draining it.

Completely disagree with draining the tank, huge waste of time. Just don't get into boost until it's refilled with premium...

What about some octane booster and a light pedal until the tank is gone......sort of finding the middle ground.

I don't care about the environment. Neither do you.

Buttery spread can be good if its not too cold, too cold and it flicks out of the container all over your shirt or your bosses shirt.

Sounds like there's a story behind that.

If you have a 76 near you, put in some of their 100 octane racing fuel

Worst case, siphon some of the fuel out into a gas can and then add some high octane to it.

Similar to adding the additives at the gas station when the fuel is delivered.
