Default hard start 93 240

Ok, the car is hard to start when I have over 3/4 of a tank. When its less than 1/2 a tank its starts alot better. Both pumps are working, replaced the fuel filter. The basic tune up has been done? Any thoughts? ITs a 93 Volvo 240 sedan auto. with over 200,000 miles.

Do these have a purge solenoid? I saw one on a 1989 740 and that was news to me.

It's the only thing I can think of that would be fuel level related that could possibly cause an issue.

Gotcha, i will do a little digging. Runs good once started but hard to start and it is always when its above half tank. Will let you know what I find out. Think I will go ahead and do diagnostic steps might find more stuff that need fixin. Havent had this 240 very long and fixing it for my son.
