I would be almost certain that info is in your manual, at least it is in my 2017 one....

(Even though you have the 6600 watt charger in the vehicle you will be limited to either 12A or 8A charging at 120VAC, so minimum time to charge is about 13 hours at 12A and 19 hours at 8A).

Time to charge????
The same as level 1 charging on any other Gen 2 Volt (2016 - 2019); ~19-20 hours @ the 8 amp default setting, ~13 - 14 hours at the 12 amp setting. For comparison, Level 2 charging for the 2016 - 2018 Volt (240V @ 16 amps) will completely recharge the Volt's battery in ~ 4.5 hours. On the 2019 Volt only, the optional 7.2kW onboard charger is capable of charging at 240V @ 32 amps, this will fully recharge the Volt's battery in ~2 hours and 20 minutes.

Level 1 (12A) charges the Volt at about 3 miles of added range per hour of charge. Charge time varies with miles driven since last charge.

and if the Volt is only 1/2 empty it only takes about 1/2 the time to fully charge up.

Not all of us take the battery to zero bars on each days drive.

I find that charging at 8 amp -120Vac has me at full the next day

As Whatstreet pointed out miles added per hour is a good conversion to use for different charge rates.
I would need a 1 hr workout at the YMCA 240 Volt pay charger to get home ( Binks up the price so gas is a lot cheaper)
