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.

I had a similar issue and started to notice other electrical failures along with the gas gauge. My rear doors would not lock and my rear wiper stopped working. I started pulling fuses and relays to see if this would reset, no go. But then I hit the jackjpot. In the rear electrical panel, below all the fuses and relays is a 2" x 2" black plastic square with a big screw in it.
Remove the screw and pull evenly on the black square. This seems to be a major electrical hub for the car. I reconnected and all 3 of my issues disappeared...I read somewhere that a fix might be to disconnect the battery for a few minutes, which I guess re-sets some relays and circuits, but I guess this did the same thing. Good luck.
