Classic case of letter accumulation, seen it a thousand times. An abbreviation here, some text-messaging shorthand there. All those letters end up in your trunk (they have to go someplace you know...). Pretty soon your shocks can't compensate anymore and voila, your gas tank is askew.

I have the same issue on my S40, I dropped it off at the dealer to get it fixed today, no idea why its happeneing.<p>However it started after one time I let my tank run extremely empty once. I drove with the fual light on for several days, still made it to the gas station, however since then its behaved this way.<p>driving a v70 loaner until it gets fixed,w hich I hope is soon

got my fuel guage issue fixed.<br>dealer provided repair and loaner all under warranty. They said that the ignition switch or something like that was replaced, some sort of fuel guage instrumentation too. Ans also some software update was applied.<p>so far so good, but I've only had it back a day, came back with a full tank of gas too, so it will be awhile before I can test it. no sign of angels.
