Regular gas in 2007 Dodge Ram 6.7l diesel

I accidently put 8 gallons of regular gas into 6.7l diesel. I caught what I had done and finished filling with diesel. The tank size is 34 gallons so about 1/4 of the tank was regular gas. nI was on the road trying to reach a location to deal with a family emergency and in my ignorance I decided to continue driving thinking the mixture was not enough to adversely affect the engine. Every 50 miles miles I stopped and topped off the tank with diesel. I ended up driving 200 miles before the truck was home. During the driving I did not have one single issue. Not a single backfire or any sign of power loss. I drove the highway at 70-80 mph, climbed step hills, etc. After i got home i started researching the gas in diesel issue and realized how lucky i was not to have broke down on the road and caused serious engine issues. My question is what to do next? Get tank drained? What else?
