I also use a 16A 240V charger on a 12 gauge/20 Amp circuit. I got lucky and found a branch circuit in the breaker box that had only one outlet box on it, and it terminated in the box under the porch near the driveway. It had a 120V breaker on the branch, but I swapped it out for a 240V breaker and put a NEMA 16-20 outlet in the box. Total cost was probably $50-$100 to get a 240V outlet next to the driveway, using the existing branch circuit. This is what I use for charging at a weekend lake cabin about 100 miles from our home.

When I'm at home, I charge using the Chevy-provided L1 charger on a 120V outlet near the driveway, in the cellar of our 1920s home. I keep meaning to run a 240V branch for the charger, but in 2 years I haven't needed it yet...
