We look at what an edgy body kit might do to your Tesla Model S, cops who drive electric cars, and why "renewable diesel" isn't what you probably think of as "biodiesel." All this and more today on Green Car Reports.

Body kits are a common way to jazz up your car, but would such a kit for the Tesla Model S reduce its electric range?

Renewable diesel fuel is different than the widely used and imprecise term biodiesel; Propel is now offering the new fuel at filling stations.
