Ford 2.3L gasser vs. 2.3L diesel?

I was web surfing the other day and read that Ford had a couple of small diesel engines at one time for the Rangers. A 2.3L and I think a 1.8L. Not being an engine kinda guy I don't know anything about them. I read that diesels are more efficient than gassers and can deliver better FE, but to what extent. Does anyone have any experience with these little diesels or any info on what kind of FE the really get? They sound like an interesting alternative to a gas engine if the returns are really that good. Thanks.
