Question about 2002 Volvo V70
Just bought 2002 xc70 w/ less than 72K. I filled up, probably over filled due to slope angle angle away from the pump. As I walked around to drivers side I see wet spot on the ground expanding rapidly. Gas was just about streaming on outside of black plastic cover or possibly the tank itself. I went ahead and drove it about 80 miles and checked again and it was not leaking but fumes then and today are very strong.
If the location of the wet spot was towards the rear of the car by the fuel full hose and as you said the leak stopped as you use up fuel and lowered the fuel level in the tank than the leak is located in the fill pipe area or tank. Next time you fill go under the car and look for the wet spot.
