    Green fluid usually could be some kind of coolant. Battery coolant?

    That is what I was thinking. They could be testing a new type of coolant or doing comparisons, etc.

    What if they don't work for Tesla and those are ICE or PHEV mules for another company? Just a MS shell.

    Looking at the Frunk / hood it has a liner on it like you would have in an ICE car, I believe its an insulator to contain the heat... wonder what they had under there!!

    Maybe it requires something with a little more kick. Plutonium.

    That's where the Cerebrospinal fluid goes for its brain and nervous system.

    Exactly! Remember that patent from Tesla for dual battery? I was wondering when they would be playing that card... My bet : end of this year during M3 part 2
