'99 XcV70 Fuel Pump went - OUCH!

My wagon had been behaving fine...

Replacing the ABS module was on the list to do when I got the time & Money,
and was creeping up the list...

The other day I went to move it... It wouldn't start... cranked fine, but
would not even sputter.

Called the shop and they sent a tow truck...

After much testing they said the Fuel pump went bad, and it is a PAIN to get
to... Drop the Rear Axle, then the shaft, then the tank, then replace the
pump.

Over $2500. MAJOR OUCH.

I didn't try an independent shop as this is my company car and I need it
back FAST... but OUCH again...

Anyone else got bit by this one...

Hear lots of stories about Fuel filters recently due to bad gas... could
that be the same cause ?

I did... and that was about right.

The NON-AWD was less than HALF of that.

A LOT of the labor was dropping the Axel and propeller shaft...
