Using a Mason Jar Olive Oil Lamp?

I am curious to know the rate at which olive oil burns, specifically, how long will the 1/2 cup of olive oil I've just put into my first homemade olive oil-Mason jar lamp last? In my workplace we use numerous paraffin tea lights every night.

I am hoping to find an inexpensive, eco alternative that I can turn my bosses onto. I'm guessing they will want to know how long the olive oil will last so they can calculate costs for this lighting option.
Thanks!

Can't you just light one and time it? Also would probably vary on the quality of the oil and wick that you use.

So I used extra virgin olive oil in a tin gift box top from the dollar store and used a coffee filter paper that I just submerged in the extra virgin olive oil and lit on fire and burned for hours. My apartment filled with smoke but it was beautiful it did not make me cough or sting my eyes like other smoke does. I even mixed it with candle wax still good so that is my contribution
