Its pretty obvious that when they say 15k miles, and they offer a warranty, their oil is probably good till 16k or 17k.

Anyway, as I suggested in a different thread, I would deduct 15% off the top and change at 13k miles. Way better than changing at 7k miles. This only applies to reputed manufacturers with oils of good standing.
