Your mileage may vary. ってのがあるのですが、

Your mileage may vary:

Your mileage may vary cav. [from the standard disclaimer attached to EPA mileage ratings by American car manufacturers] 

1. A ritual warning often found in UNIX freeware distributions. Translates roughly as "Hey, I tried to write this portably, but
who *knows* what'll happen on your system?" 

2. More generally, a qualifier attached to advice. "I find that sending flowers works well, but your mileage may vary." 

なんて訳したらウケるでしょう :-)
