    If your heart is set on using the existing 30a wiring and breaker, set it up as a 14-30 outlet (or L14-30 round). Put a plug or adapter on the EVSE to match. That way nothing higher than 30a can be plugged into it.

    Although I'd just redo it now to 14-50R to give the most safety and possibilities. Remove the old 30a breaker, replace with 50a breaker, use 6 gauge wires. Total parts are usually under $100. They make all sorts of adapters for 14-50 outlets since they are used for RVs.

    The Volt is limited to 15amps*240v=3.6kw and charges at ~12mph. The LCS-30 provides 24amps*240v=5.76kw, and would charge a Bolt at ~20miles per hour. This is probably more than adequate.
