We had that happen while I worked at Honda. If the nozzle doesn't fit in the gas tank that should tell you something . . . .Diesel nozzles are larger diameter so it DOES NOT fit in a gasoline filler hole.
We drained the fuel tank, flushed fuel lines, replaced fuel filter and all injectors. The best part was the car only had 5,000 miles and the owner thought it would be covered under warranty. I don't think so, LMAO.
