Default Filtering on quality

What kind of trimming and/or quality filter do you use before mapping reads? Are there any commonly accepted filtering criteria?

I am trying to map some data from an older sequencer and my filtering (Q>15, no more than 6 bases outside quality range allowed) seems to filter out about 85% of the reads.
