Probably true, but it does not pull like the Hemi will at those speeds.
Granted, you'll pass the Hemi a few times as it stops for fuel, passes you, stops for fuel, lather rinse repeat.

The EcoDiesel has way more torque than the hemi, and will out tow the hemi any day of the week with both hands tied behind its back, blindfolded, and in reverse (OK maybe not in reverse).

I think lstowell meant that the diesel won't tow as well as the hemi at 118 mph. And I think he's right, because the diesel's torque is declining more than the hemi's at really high rpm. So all you speed demons would be better off with a hemi. I keep it under 75 mph, so the diesel is better for me.
