Autoblog experiences the joy of 9-10 mpg in a 2007 Rolls-Royce Phantom

AutoblogGreen and Autoblog are like two sides of a coin; sometimes what matters is that we're connected and we try to bring you the full spectrum of automotive news, other times there is no disputing how much we're on opposite sides of an issue. I think Autoblog's review of the 2007 Rolls-Royce Phantom that went up today puts us squarely in that second category. I have not doubt that the ride is every bit as amazing as Alex Nunez makes it sound, but there is simply no way I could enjoy a car that gets, I kid you not, around 9-10 miles per gallon in everyday life (even though the sticker says it gets 13 in the city and 19 on the highway). I'm sitting here wondering if I could enjoy it even for a mile or two; Alex loved it.

Alex does have a little bit of fun with the terrible un-green-ness of this Phantom, as you can see in this picture. While the biggest story here is that a blog got to test drive an almost $400,000 car, for AutoblogGreen, the notable detail is that this post marks just the seventh story we've done on Rolls-Royce in our 18 month history. I think that just about says it all. Here are the other six:
