Need to drop the tank and dump all the fuel out. Or pay someone to do it for you.

You have to drop the gas tank and dump all the fuel out. If it got to the engine it could be seized. Find a good mechanic that nows about dodge.

You have to drain all the fuel in the tank and purge the fuel in the lines and fuel rail. The fuel filter needs to be replaced too. A shop is better equipped to this kind of job.

If you drove it until it started acting up, meaning it tried to burn the mixture of gas and diesel, and then quit on you and now wont start, you have a bunch of money I hope. Your going to have to replace all the injectors and the fuel pump Im sure ($175+ each for the injectors and fuel pump $375+) and that's if that's all that's damaged. Theres a chance the pistons may be damaged because their not made to handle diesel fuel and caused ring issues. I say good luck, have a compression check done. If compression specs are off, buy a new motor or new car.

If you accidentally filled your charger with diesel fuel and learnt of your mistake when you tried to start it and started smoking badly as the manager of the gas bar alerted authorities. You would have to drop the tank and flush out the tank along with the lines. Also the fuel filter would need to be changed as well.
