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?

Do you
have the same problem?

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)
