Diesel engines are built to last a long time.  However, diesel engines come with their own set of challenges, which makes it critically important that you maintain the engine properly.


Diesel engines get very hot due to the compression process that ignites the fuel. Furthermore, diesel engines use glow plugs, rather than spark plugs that you find in non-diesel engines. Glow plugs also heat up rapidly to get the diesel engine working faster.


This just means you need to make sure your diesel engine is working at it's top efficiency so you get great gas mileage.  A poorly maintained diesel engine will burn more fuel, and likely not last as long.
