Because the fuel is not in contact with the fuel sender, being on a slope the fuel is pooled up against the back of the fuel cell, for example, half fill a glass of water then tip it back, note the level of the water in the front of the glass goes down and the rear of the glass, towards you, gets closer to the top. same basic principal, park the car on level ground and your problem should go away

I have a 2001 Volvo XC (V70), I think the fuel gauge may be frozen. Is this possible?

Electrical issue is causing your hassles. Look for a bad ground in circuit common to those items.

The fuel gage of my 98 volvo v70 is not working, sometimes it work

In order to fix the fuel gauge problem, you will have to change the fuel sending unit. If the car has more than 100,000 miles I would recommend to change the whole fuel pump assembly, which would cost from $60-100 in the part alone which consists of the fuel sending unit, etc. This will definitely help your fuel gauge problem for sure.

Ignition switch will not turn on. Battery is good. Steering wheel is locked, What should we do?

Quite often that will happen when vehicle parked with wheels turned, and/or vehicle on a slope, so try to avoid that in future.If nothing else, when parked on a slope, stop, keep foot on brake pedal, apply parking brake, put transmission in neutral, then take foot off brake pedal and wait for parking brake to stop vehicle rolling, then shift it into park. When leaving, put foot on brake pedal, shift to drive or reverse whatever direction your going, then release parking brake. Sounds like a lot to remember but you won't have to pull hard on shifter as before, and it could save a lot of money on transmission repairs down the road. Always try to park with wheels straight as well.
Now, with that said, if you parked with wheels turned, try hard to turn steering wheel in same direction wheels are turning, just slightly, as you try to turn key. Sometimes a quick yank in that direction will do it. Also make sure shifter is all the way in park before you try it. If your on a slope try rocking vehicle slightly up slope as you push/pull shift lever in to park and try to turn key at same time. If no luck, try pushing brake pedal real hard and try to turn key. Let me know how it goes.

I can start my car and when I step on the brake to shift from park to reverse it is stuck

Are you parked on a slope? If so, you may need to have someone push the car back gently while you attempt to shift into reverse. Have them push using the door frame and not while standing in front or back. Sometimes the transmission parking pawl gets jammed when the car is parked on a slope. If you are not on a slope, make sure the steering wheel is not locked up. If it is, turn it various ways while leaving the shifter alone until you get it to turn freely.

Volvo S80 gauge indicates no or low fuel even when tank is half full.

The most likely culprit is a faulty Fuel Level Sending Unit (sends fuel level from tank to dash gauge). It may be stuck, or beyond repair and in need of replacement. Dealing with electronics in your tank can be tricky and should be dealt with by a professional.

Good luck!

Where is fuel filter on 1997 Volvo 850 T-5

The fuel filter is located on the passenger side near the rear wheel well, just in front of the rear axle, around 60cm in front of the fuel tank. Look for the fuel lines running underneath the car. The filter is around 12-13cm in length and around 7cm in diameter, probably covered in road grime,
