The start and end time are recorded in the results. So this is already included in the data, when you set it up for recording the times. Just substract the end time from the start time...
Have a look at the manual! It is a really valuable source for information. Here some helpful links:

The start time and end time are the same in the database. Beside that is limesurvey can calculate the difference. Then we can know it through the browser database.

Sounds strange that the start and the end time are the same. Did you enable the timestamp for the survey?

I gave it a try and I have the same problem, the start time is the same as the time of last action and the time of submission.

However, when activating timings it seems like the time is recorded correctly and it gives me a total time that makes sense.

There are two table, one is for the data, one is for timing. The data in the timing table is right. But the startdate and submitdate in the data table is not right.
