I bet it will be fine. But only time will tell. drain everything, and fill it back up.
How much gas got in? My neighbor put gas in thier Jetta and drove it about 7 miles till it died. And its still fine.

My brother tried to top the tank off on our CIH 2188 with gas during fall harvest this past year. I got him stopped before he put too much in. Finished filling with red. It coughed and sputtered on start up for a while. Ran that tank through and re filled with red again, hasn't coughed since. Sam :grd

It,s happened to me in a tractor. We just put in one quart of oil for every five gals. of gas. Gas is drier than diesel it dosen't have the lubricants.

It will most likely be OK. Biggest thing I'd worry about is the lack of lube on the P&Bs in the injectors. If it doesn't start running funny you should be good to go!
