Talking new guy

hey everyone!
im new to diesels, stumbled across the site and liked what i saw! lots of helpful /interesting posts. one of my main concerns with my diesel is how to boost mileage. i did my first mod to the truck last weekend which was a straight pipe, not sure if it helps mileage, but i got the sound i wanted for cheap. another question i have is how long will my engine last before needing a rebuild? my dad racked up 350,000 miles on the truck before i bought it from him, and he drove it very conservatively...unlike me! i have already had to replace the solenoid in the tranny, but besides that, the only other problem i can remember was replacing the water pump a couple years ago.
any input would be great...sorry for the novel.
