2015 Volvo XC60, XC70 recalled for fuel gauge fix

Volvo has issued a recall in Australia for 144 of its 2015 model-year XC60 and XC70 crossovers fitted with the five-cylinder turbo-diesel engines over concerns the fuel gauge could be faulty. The Swedish manufacturer reports that the fuel gauge in affected vehicles could show there is sufficient fuel even when the car has an empty tank.
