Default How long does a Nitrogen tank last?

I have a 20 cu ft tank for my stout faucet that is drained after pouring 4-5 pints. How big of a tank do y'all use? I'm thinkin there might be a leak in my system.

You definitely have a leak. I would expect you to get more like 4-5 kegs out of it not just pints.
