I probably wouldn't do another oil change after this one till 6mos/5k miles. Since the person that will be driving it never changed the oil. The last one was at least 6 plus years ago assuming it was changed prior to changing hands.

If we are talking about radial tires, then ply count isn't really a true indicator since the term isn't applicable. Load range would be the newer metric to follow since it has a more graduated and consistent scale. http://www.sttc.com/resources/t

Windows 10 has a native antimalware client, Windows Defender, running 24/7, so I use the freebie MWB version once a month, just to double check.

I would think so. Doesn't Fram claim an even longer duration for their Ultra long drain filter? What you could do if you still have the used filter with 15K on it, is to cut it open to determine first hand how clogged it is, if at all.
