gasoline in my diesel

so i stopped to fill up the other day and grabbed the gas pump by accident and being an idiot i put 1/2 a gallon of unleaded 87 in my truck. i didnt know what to do so i just figured i would fill the rest of it up with diesel and maybe it would dilute it. i went to the ford dealer and the diesel tech gave me two bottles of PM15 to put in the tank and said i will be fine. the truck seems to run fine but what do you guys think? am i screwed?

I think your fine. 1/2 gal in a 29 or 39 gal tank isnt going to make or break the truck. If it was a few gallon's then I would be draining the tank. Just run some additive like was given to you and all will be fine. A few years back on my last powerstroke my girlfriend did the same thing, put gas in my tank. Except she put in 10+ gallons. Lets just say I was unhappy that I had to go pick up my truck with my flatbed and take the truck home to drain the tank. We are no longer together lol.
