Default Most Economical Diesel Car

Hello,
I've been on the forum for a while but still feel like a 'nube' in this department. I'm pretty familiar with diesels of the Cummins/Powerstroke varieny but know absolutely nothing about diesel passenger cars...
I'm interested in getting a good daily driver and wondering what brand, model, and year makes the most since. I understand this is a very general question so let me try to specify. I'm looking for a very reliable, prevalent(assuming this will make parts cheap and accessible), and pre-emissions diesel car. The reason I say pre-emissions is because in my experience emisions just adds cost and reliability(feel free to tell me why I'm wrong-maybe I am). I understand every brand/model is going to have their die-hard followers(which is what will make this fun) but ultimately I'd like to find a good deal on this car so how many were made and how long ago is important. Anyway thanks for the feedback!- no need to get crazy specific I'm a forum nut so if you guys throw out some good starting points I'll run them to ground!

How many miles do you have on it? Is that a common rail motor? What kind of mileage do you get?
