I think this might be the lowest mileage Insight left on the planet

Obviously you have not heard of the infamous "dogbite" with 2k mi and its the rare citrus color. Do a search for a member here named "JIME" or
a car named "dogbite".

Or the 4,000 mile insight purchased last summer just prior to InsightFest 2015.
It will likely be at InsightFest 2016 as well.

Isn't this the one that sold on eBay recently? If it had a new IMA battery installed just now, it's not a bad price for essentially new hybrid car.

Something odd in the pictures. In one pic it's clear the car has 12059 miles and battery charge is way down, but in the pic before it, it has the same miles but the charge is near the top.

Good catch! The LMPG is different, too. This suggests that the car is being driven without the miles changing.

Or someone charged the battery by running the engine without moving the car?

I'd guess with that few miles over that many years, it's got a Honda warranty replacement battery in severe need of balance charging.

What's with the "New OEM Exhaust"? with that low mileage.
