The difference between a 1.8 diesel and a 1.4 petrol will be huge.
Road tax will be cheaper on a diesel and even though the fuel is more expensive, you will get far better mileage than a petrol.
Things to check will be a good servicing interval and if the mileage is about 80k that the cam belt and tensioner have been done.
Ford recommend 100k but that's a bit optimistic.
A good clutch and brakes is a must and check for any surface rust around the wheel arches.
Other than that you're good, the 1.8 diesel is the best engine in the range and very robust.
