Not that long.I think the engine is to big for the tank. My old yard man on tracks would not even use half a tank.It needs a bigger tank

Time the tank will drain dry depends a lot on what type of snow you are blowing. If it's deep heavy stuff the tank will empty sooner than usual.

I forget I have an HR meter on there So it was less than an hour.I think I will take that stupid screen out next time I fuel it.That may have been part of the problem

Tony is correct. The tank is too small in relation to the engine's fuel consumption on that machine.
