Jump starting RX400H

My 12v battery died on our 07 RX400h. Not a huge deal, but as I went to get my pry tool to get the battery cover off to check it, I wondered what would happen if I was out and about and needed a jump...

90915-YZZD3 oil filter on RX400H?

Instead of using the standard toyota #90915-YZZD1 for my oil filter on my 3.4 Tacoma, I use the longer 90915-YZZD3 (fits our SC400) since it has more surface area and fits the same.

I've looked...
