This has been done before. Can't find the site right now though, it could go something like this.

Figure out how much horsepower your car needs to maintain speed.....generally most cars need about 20 horsepower to maintain 60 miles per hour.
Then go get a Zivan NG-5 and the correctly sized generator. I would say that combo and a 15 kw off the shelf generator( which I would put on a trailer and leave at home when I'm not using it) would give you enough power to maintain freeway speeds as long as you have gas in your generator/trailer.

And by putting it on a trailer, you get to subtract the weight penalty of having a generator weighing you down until you need it.:D
