It sounds like the inability to achieve higher motorway speeds is due to fuel starvation when increased fuel flow is required for motorway driving. It could be the fuel filter in the engine bay is clogged and is restricting fuel flow. Try replacing this first.
If problem still persists, you also may have picked up a batch of dirty fuel that has clogged the gauze input filter that is part of the fuel pump inside the fuel tank.
If so you will need to remove the pump assembly from the tank. Access to it is usually through a removable plate in the floor in the rear of the vehicle. Disconnect the hoses and remove the securing screws. Once you have the pump assembly out, allow the gauze filter to dry. You can assess the amount of clogging by shining a torch through the gauze and see how much light comes through. Clean it by brushing with an old tooth brush and blowing clean with compressed air (may have to be repeated a few times). If there is a lot of dirt/rust in the tank, try draining it, if possible. You may have to remove the pump and repeat the cleaning process in a few months if the symptoms surface again.
