How do I best maintain a diesel car?

I have just bought a 1.5-litre diesel Dacia Logan MCV. It's my first diesel car. I bought it over petrol this time as I'm driving further to work and it offered better MPG. What I want to know is how to best maintain it so that it keeps on going for years to come? Especially with regards to the DPF and emissions system as these are expensive to replace.

Use only Superdiesel and regularly drive it distances. Change the oil and filter at least once a year or at least every 10,000 miles whichever comes first.

Our car's DPF is blocked. I've have tried regenerating it by running it down the motorway, but it's had no effect. Is there anything else I can do?
