You don't need to change any settings, the Volt's on-board charger automatically detects when it is connected to a Level II 230V/240V EVSE. The estimated charging time is displayed on the Energy-Charging information screen as the local clock time for completing recharging shown for Charging Station.

The maximum amperage draw for Level II charging is 16 amps at 240VAC for 3.6KW (for the Gen II Volt). I know that when I connect to public charging station (Semaconnect) the Sema charging station typically displays 3.2KW power being supplied to the Volt while charging. I attribute this lower power level to the commercial power source being 230VAC 3-phase power instead of 240VAC residential power.
