I had this problem on my 2000 S40. The htird time I brought the care in with this
problem, I was angry, and the service manager decided to work on it himself. He suggested
trying a new gas cap. As he put the new cap on, he commented that the design was a little
different than the old one. The new cap fixed the problem. It seems that Volvo knows
there is a problem with the cap that the car came with.
