Correction: I must be smoking crack. My oil filter DOES hang at an angle, the base tilted slightly toward the oil pan. I know this because, when removing the last one, oil spilled all down the sides as I unthreaded it. I let that subside, then attempted to remove it the rest of the way. It slipped, and coated my jacket and the driveway in a half quart of oil. Whee.
BUT, judging by the way it fits, while you might be able to fit a LONGER filter in there, you'd be hard pressed to fit a WIDER one in there, as the oil pan is right there. Besides, this thing holds a QUART of oil- even the filters on the Cummins 6BT aren't as big as ours!
