I just received from autoservice that there was no gas in the tank even though gage was indicating 1/2 during driving.
What is the next step? How much is the cost?

Hello, this issue can get tricky, there is two sending units in your fuel tank since the fuel tank is a saddle tank. The left reads through the right side, if it is the fuel pump side sending unit is bad it does come as a entire unit from Volvo this runs around a 5 hour job and the parts 550-700
Now there are also 2 modules that get the data from the sending units what is the rear electrics module and the display module please make sure the shop has the equipment to be able to do the fuel level readouts from side to side in the tank and the total fuel the two modules for proper diag. Let me know if I can be further assistance. Thanks Doug
