Does anyone know how to set the charging rate to the 12 amp setting permanently rather than having to switch it from the default 8 amp setting everything single time?

Yes. Just set your Volt's Home location with your Volt parked in the parking spot where you can charge. The Volt will remember the home location for 6 months, you won't have to set the 12 amp charging option each day.

So I went into settings and then energy and then location based charging and updated the home location and made sure location based charging was set to on. How do I set the charging rate?

From the Home Screen on the Infotainment Center select Charging, then select Charge Limit Preference, select the option for Maximum: 12 amp charging. *

* The Charge Limit Preference setting resets to the Reduced 8 amp setting each time the vehicle is driven. Location Based Charging can be enabled to maintain Maximum 12 amp setting at a specified Home location. **

For additional information on Charge Limit Preference selections see Volt Owner's Manual Page 121 (page reference is for 2017 Manual only.)

** Using Location Based Charging:

1) From the Home screen select Settings.

2) Select Vehicle.

3) Select Energy.

4) Select Location Based Charging.

5) Touch Set Home Location.

6) A pop-up will confirm the setting, the compass icon will be lit. In addition, the Set Home Location will change to Update Home Location.

For additional information on turning Location Based Charging On and Off, updating the Home Location see Volt Owner's Manual Page 127 (page reference is for 2017 Manual only.)

I spent a couple of hours for close to a week just sitting in the driver's seat with the car on and the manual open.
