Re: Convince me as to why I want a diesel

One thing I can assure you of is if you were comparing the driveability of the Hemi vs EcoDiesel they likely both had very few miles on them. The EcoDiesel really opens up after 5000 Miles. It is slightly Doggier with low Miles.

Did you run the numbers with regular fuel on the HEMI, too? Seems that quite a number of forum-members are using regular on the HEMI without any issues.

Good to here. I was greatly impressed by the acceleration at 50mph and below on an Overland diesel with under 100 miles on it.
