Is there anywhere online that indicates what different capacity oil filters can be used for the same application? (i.e. What filter would be the same as our G8's that might hold another few ounces of oil by virtue of being a bit longer. A Purolator #PL12222 is 4.02" long, but a Purolator #PLXXXXX is the same thread size but maybe 6.35" long). Another example is that I know my one GM car specs an AC Delco oil filter #PF47, but if I buy a PF52 I get the same basic filter only the 52 is about 2 inches longer.

Specifically, I'm looking to determine what a longer filter would be for a Purolator #PL10241.

Well, the filter makers used to have tables of dia, length and thread size. So you would then find a filter with the same thread, similar diameter but longer length. You got my curiosity up.
