Depends on maintenance. With the use of cheap, non-diesel rated oils and irregular oil changes 200,000 miles would be about all you could hope for. With proper maintenance, good oils like Shell Rotella T, or Amsoil synthetic, gentle driving, and a few add-ons like a good bypass filter and fuel water separator, 400,000 would be expected and 500,000 not unlikely.

Why do diesel engines last so long?

ANY engine (gas/diesel) lasts long as long u take a GOOD CARE of it, I just sold my 1997 camry with 363,000 miles on it and guess what? ORIGINAL engine, sounded like a DREAM. Good fuel, oil, and correct maintenance will tell everything. Due to the fact that a diesel engine uses compression to ignite the fuel rather than a spark plug they must be built much stronger than a gasoline engine. They therefore normally last much longer but they also cost more to build and buy.
