SOURCE: 1999 volvo v70 xc gas tank
Option 1 the easiest way is to jump the fuel pump relay with the fuel feed line at the engine disconnected from the engine and connected to some sort of catch basin (bucket, gas can, etc.) this allows you to use the vehicles fuel pump to drain the fuel. All you have to do is find the fuel pump relay, then jump the positive side (key off) to power to make the fuel pump run, use that to pump all the bad fuel out.
Option 2 is to remove the filler neck and check valve from the tank (a real pain on that car)
Option 3 is to remove and drain the tank... this is the most costly and time consuming option as the alldata labor guide quotes 8 hours labor time.. so i would advise option 1
As for damage to the vehicle/engine that is always possible with a contaminated fuel, my advice would be just to get the bad fuel out as soon as possible, get good gas in it and give it a try.

From Volvo Cars of North America letter I received: "[Volvo] has voluntarily decided to extend warranty coverage for the fuel pump on U.S. model year 2001-2002 Volvo S80, S60, V70, and XC70 vehicles."
The letter goes on to describe conditions that in the end, may result in a fuel odor. "Coverage is limited to the symptoms described in this letter for the fuel pump only."
Contact a Volvo dealer to have this corrected under warranty. If you already paid to have this fixed, then you can submit the repair order with a copy of the warranty letter (keeping both for your records) to Volvo on the address on the letter. If you did not get the letter, I'd suggest contacting Volvo.
Bottom line is that you should not have to pay to have this fixed.

The fuel filter can be located under the carpeted cargo storage floor at the rear of the wagon. Remove the four 10mm bolts, remove the cover. You will then see a removeable plate to the right just behind the rear passenger seat. Fuel filter can be seen through hole in hole. Replaced from underneath wagon. Be sure to make sure lines are fully inserted onto filter. Check for leaks. No smoking, extinguisher handy. Note arrow on filter for correct fuel flow.

The most common problem is either the blower motor or the speed control resistor. Both items can be accessed by removing the glove box and panel below it.
