Not real clear here cause Diesel is an actual oil. Did you put diesel fuel in the tank or did you put Diesel engine oil in the oil pan? If you Delo or 15W40 engine oil in the oil pan, it’s a little to heavy weight for the engine, could cause internal engine problems especially with any hydraulic control like lifters, VVT systems. If you put Diesel as a fuel, it just depends on how much diesel you put in, if to much it won’t run very long as the fuel is to thick to get by the injectors, if only a gallon or two it will smoke some but will burn it out.
