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.

I had a similar problem with my 1999 S80. Give this a try. You don't need any mechanical experience. At no point will you come into contact with any gasoline. This is a five minute fix if it's what I think it is.
Background: when you gas up your car, it goes down a tube to the gas tank. There is a vent on that tube to let off gas fume pressure that can build up in the tank. If the vent gets clogged pressure builds up in the tank. Modern gas pumps shut off when that pressure comes back up the tube from the tank. I think if you clean out the vent with a Q-tip you'll solve your problem. At least, it worked for me.
(fig. 1 - a vent for the tube that leads to your gas tank)
I suppose it's possible that when you open the blockage some gas fumes will vent out, so don't be smoking while you do this :) Now that I've said this, to be super-duper safe why not do this outside away from any chance of open flame.

Have same issue with my xc70 cold to coolish on drivers side and warm to hot on pass... slowly, with driving, pass side becomes cool. Slight swoosh sound from dash attributed to A/C is intermittent. Thought to be kinked tube or puncture? : (
