purge time is largely dependant on many different variables. The best way to determine purge time is to look at the VO pickup line, and purge until diesel is present. Just watch inside the tank with the purge valve open until you are sure diesel is present.

Look at the sticky's on top of the page in this section. There is a lot of good info there.

I have my temp gauge plumbed right after my FPHE. So I know I have purged long enough when I see my temp gauge start to drop. That takes about 5 seconds. Then I run her for about 90 seconds & shut her down.
