Here at NuWave Marine, we offer a sizable selection of portable tiller motors 2.5-25hp to fully meet the needs of our customers. If you’re not sure which outboard is best suited to your watercraft, we’ll make a recommendation based on our more than 30 years of industry experience.  

How much does a 20hp Mercury tiller outboard weigh? 

Weight is a major consideration when choosing a motor for your seafaring vessel. When an outboard is too heavy, it will be hard to transport from place to place. Additionally, a hefty motor will also add weight to your boat, which can decrease your speed on the water.  

Fortunately, the Mercury Marine 20 horsepower outboard is quite light compared to other 4-stroke motors. Weights for different models include: 

  • 20MH (15” shaft) – 103 pounds 
  • 20MLH (20” shaft) - 107 pounds 
  • 20EH (15” shaft) - 111 pounds 
  • 20ELH (20” shaft) - 114 pounds
  • 20ELHPT (20” shaft) – 124 pounds 

The lightweight design of this outboard ensures the ultimate in convenience without sacrificing one bit of power when boating.  

What is the fuel consumption of a 20 hp tiller outboard motor? 

When it comes to manufacturer recommendations, this motor should do well with a minimum of 87 octane with up to 10% ethanol. As for fuel consumption, a 20 hp 4-stroke motor will typically consume 1.69 gallons per hour (gph) at 5,500 rotations per minute. Keep in mind that you’ll use about 1 gph per every 10 hp the motor offers. This rule generally holds true across all Mercury portable remote motors 2.5-25hp. 

How fast does a Mercury 20p outboard go? 

When it comes to the top speeds of a 20 hp tiller outboard boat motor, there’s more to consider than just capability. A number of factors can dictate speeds, including: 

  • The design of the hull 
  • Propeller type 
  • Weather conditions 
  • Smoothness of the water
  • How many passengers you’re carrying
  • The weight of the equipment onboard 

On the low end, you can expect top speeds between 17 and 19 mph. Under favorable conditions, boats can reach 22 mph with this level of horsepower. And in ideal conditions with minimal weight, some boaters report reaching as much as 27 mph.
