There is one and only one reliable constant in EtG testing... time
. The greater the amount of time between last drink and the test the less the potential for detection.
That being said, accepting the assumption of 5 drinks you should be clear at 72 hours. There is no research record of EtG positive at that level of consumption/time span.
EtG is a very unreliable test. Why did you voluntarily submit to that test?
If you will provide your age, height, weight and gender I'll be happy check against g/kg and might come a little closer. NOTICE:
Any person or entity that is subjected to or relies on EtG testing should read this Advisory issued by the US Department of Health and Human Services, September 2006 and remains in effect as of date of this posting. Copy available here > US DHHS Advisory
