This is a nasty problem with this car. It is the smell of mostly Sulphur. It comes when the Catalytic Convertor gets faulty. Replace it and get Smell-free. Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Changed the pcv box on a 2002 volvo s80 2.9l non-turbo. Was getting codes for too lean. Replaced one injector in the process. After putting it together, it started, smoked, and smelled strongly of gas. ...

a rough guess as to the excessive fuel smell and smoking < I would say that the seal under the injector tip is damaged or missing and that fuel is bypassing the injector
probably now flooded and that is why it will not start
lean codes are generally caused by a faulty HO2S sensor ( heated oxygen sensor) in the exhaust manifold/s before the cat converter/s
other possible causes are MAF/VAF sensor faults and low fuel pressures

Volvo s80 2003, I just got it have drivin it with only putting quater of a tank of gas in it code p0455 has been on. I filled the tank for the first time the other day and parked it in my garradge. In...

code p0455 refers to evaporative emission (EVAP) system--large leak detected.===causes--hose connections--intake leak-- EVAP canister --EVAP canister purge valve. There is a possibility that the filler hose to the tank is loose or cracked and when you filled the tank it is running out of the cracked hose. The same applies to the hoses from the tank to the canister and back from the fuel manifold. I would pay attention to the purge valve as if it is not working then fuel smells become a problem also

2005 volvo xc90 2.9 l smell gas in garage after filling up

Hello, I know you posted this question almost a year ago and I don't know if you have your answer yet. I just wanted to let you know we had a similar problem after purchasing a used 2003 Volvo XC90 earlier this year for my daughter to drive around, and found out that there was an outstanding recall on it due to the fumes from the gas tank. It had something to do with the fuel lines, and and the fuel tank, and being in a southern state (in which we are) I would suggest checking to see if your car falls into this category.
