The influence of vibrational excitation of SF6 molecules on the shift of CH4 absorption lines in the СН4-SF6 binary system has been estimated. It is shown that if 10-30% of buffer gas molecules are excited, the change in the line shift can achieve 12%, which is detectable with the spectrometer resolution of 10-3 сm-1.
