Oh I see it is only the smell. Probably just a good airing is all that is needed then. Not sure if Fabreeze would do it, but try it.
Mate you must have pretty potent Diesel.

As previously indicated, fire statistics reveal that the products of thermal decomposition (smoke and toxic gases*) are responsible for the majority of fire deaths.

* carbon monoxide, hydrogen chloride, hydrogen cyanide, sulphur dioxide and oxides of nitrogen

Urethane foams are flammable, and should be protected by a covering that will prevent excessive temperature rise. Inherently Fire-Retardant Fabric coverings, and Fire-Retardant Sprays, can mitigate the dangers posed by synthetic foam upholstery*.

*Unprotected polyurethane foam produces smoke within 40 seconds of exposure to flame.
