Improper Calibration

Anyone who suffers from diabetes often have high acetone level in their system. Acetone is one of the substances that can be mistakenly identified as ethyl alcohol by some machines.

Hematocrit Reading

Some machines assume that the person’s hematocrit level in their blood is 47 percent even though hematocrit values can range from 42 to 52 percent in men and from 37 to 47 percent in women. An individual with a lower percentage may end up with a falsely high reading.

Absorption Rate

The absorption rate of alcohol can continue for a certain period of time after the person has stopped drinking and the BAC level may have increased since the person was actually driving.

Gastrointestinal Reflux

Acid reflux disease can cause natural alcohols to build up in the stomach. People who suffer from this condition burp up alcohol into the mouth resulting in a false reading.


People who regularly work with certain types of products, such as paint thinner, gasoline and cleaning fluids often register a false positive reading.
