I saw the add for this stuff on both HPTV and Trucks, on Trucks they advertised an 8year/200,000 mile warranty if you use this stuff according to the directions. Nothing that sucks comes with a warranty like that, is this something I should look into? I don't know what i'd need it for, my engine is in great condition.. my tranny should soon be in great condition.. what do you guys think? Should I pick some up?

What does it do? Who cares what warranty it has if it doesn't do anything. And warranties can only be used if the product caused a problem. Which can be hard to prove.

Here is their product lineup

I thought the warranty would be if engine fails in 8 years/200,000 miles with the warranty they will replace your engine or something.

I'm not really a fan of "treatment" additives. I don't think most of them do a lot. Regular maintainence is the best way to take care of your engine.
