Dear convert-me.com forum visitors,

Our forum has been available for many years. In September 2014 we decided to switch it to read-only mode. Month after month we saw less posts with questions and answers from real people and more spam posts. We were spending more and more resources cleaning the spam until there were less them 1 legitimate message per 100 spam posts. Then we decided it's time to stop.

All the posts in the forum will be available and searchable. We understand there are a lot of useful information and we aren't going to remove anything. As for the new questions, you can always ask them on convert-me.com FaceBook page

Thank you for being with us and sorry for any inconveniences this could caused.

It is referred to as percent, but it is really grams per 100 milliliters (or deciliter). It is NOT corrected for the fact that 100 mL of blood is about 106 grams; it is not a true percentage by weight. This link may give you further info:

For your example, 7.27 g/L would be 0.727 g/dL. It would most likely be a fatal dose. Our traffic laws about around 0.08 g/dL, but it is quoted as 0.08% BAC.

BTW -

If you get (blow) a 0.0800 on a BAC test anywhere in the USA as of August 2005 you are busted for DUI. It must be BELOW 0.0800 (like 0.0799 or under).
