I've heard reference to doing a "diesel purge", it supposedly cleans out engine/fuel so that the car runs better, etc. What can you tell me about this and is it possible to do on my car?

No. When a diesel engine runs out of gas, it's necessary to purge the line of air in order to restart the engine. (Unnecessary with gas engines)
