Check under the passenger rear door on the fuel tank and see if it is wet. If it is then the fuel pump is most likely cracked. Some states have an extended warranty.

It is kind of a pain but first check with your local Volvo dealer. The states that have the extended warranty extends it for 10 years 150K miles I believe.
