The 12 Amp setting will charge faster, however remember that 120V charging isn't very fast.
Both will charge the battery to the same level.
If you have a quality outlet with nothing else on the circuit, and you have never popped the breaker while charging, you can use the 12 Amp setting. When in doubt, ask an electrician.
The 8 Amp setting puts less loading on the circuit, so some other loads can be on the same circuit.
If you have old construction, or anything gets hot, or any other reason to doubt the wiring, ask an electrician.
Many owners install a 240V charging station at home to get faster charging and to avoid old wiring problems.

Most everything around here is wet during the rainy season. And the rainy season is long.

Can't sit in a Bolt seat, hoping for better soon.
Or perhaps a Buick version? Buick Electra 225???
