There may be problem with the mass air flow sensor (very common with Volvo). This causes the fuel system to malfunction.
You may have noticed increased fuel consumption, loss of power and general 'lazyness'.
Better to take it to authorized Volvo service for a checkup/fix.

Basically this means that an oxygen sensor in banks 1 and 2 detected a rich condition (too little oxygen in the exhaust).
A code P0172 may mean that one or more of the following has happened:
· The MAF (Mass Air Flow) Sensor is dirty or faulty. Note: The use of "oiled" air filters can cause the MAF to become dirty if the filter is over-oiled. There is also an issue with some vehicles where the MAF sensors leak the silicone potting material used to protect the circuitry.
· There could be a vacuum leak
· There could be a fuel pressure or delivery problem
Possible solutions include:
Make sure you are careful not to damage the MAF sensor, and make sure it's dry before reinstalling
