^Please note: There is no BAC calculator that is 100% accurate because of the number of factors that affect consumption and reduction (burnoff) rates of different people. These factors include amount of food in the stomach when drinking, medications or drugs that may be in the system, metabolism rates, etc. The best that can be done is a rough estimate of BAC based on the information provided.
