    Different states have different laws about "Freeway requirements" on vehicles. I believe all states have a law on "Traffic Impedence".

    Well, if you are not particularly risk adverse and you feel comfortable driving a vehicle with a top speed of 50mph (that speed is no doubt under favorable conditions) on any highway, more power to you. I certainly would not, but fortunately we still live in a mostly free country. Let us know how your highway driving turns out.

    It is called "slower traffic keep right". If you are as far right as you can go, you are good to go!

    It is governed to 50 MPH, so under most all conditions, that is the speed. Except for when battery is below 30%, in which case max. speed is limited.

    There are minimum speed and holding up traffic laws in Arizona. Don't know about other states.

    It seems like needless worry about driving a low-speed, short range vehicles on highways, especially when the vehicle is non-operational.
    We all hope the OP gets the thing working, but there are some lessons to be learned here for the observant.
    (Something about buying good tools, and picking the proper tool for the job.)

    Holding up traffic only applies to the LEFT LANE. If the signs say MINIMUM SPEED 40 and you are slow in the right lane, you are good to go.

    If you ever get it running perhaps you can do videos (youtube) of using it on various highways and busy state roads.
