Default plugged fuel line

How long can you run on just gas down stream of the plug in the fuel line?
I have no way of intentionally plugging a line, short of the off position, so I have no answer to this, but occasionally read of someone who was unknowingly trying to find out.

If you had a plugged line, the best case would be to find it on the ground. How long would you have to run to do that?
Worst case would be to find it just after T/O.
Door #2: In between the above 2 options is to find it at cruise altitude at a location of your choice.

I'll take door #2.
Always start, taxi, T/O on the same tank.
