Unhappy Is this a fuel pump? Running dry oops!

Hello again from across the pond! (U.K)

Sorry we have been quiet for so long, we have been busy finishing off our bar skoolie (some more photos to follow) one foot forward ten steps back...

Anyhow, our bus has just been for its MOT (annual vehicle inspection), however its failed on "excessive oil leaking"

Now ive tried tracking where its coming from and it appears its this device (Attached photos) its very wet around there and its not the consistency of oil rather more diesel.

Which has i think also caused us to splutter and struggle to start again as its leaking few drops every 20 seconds or so, we stupidly let it run too low as when i was filling it back up with a jerry can it sounded like an empty drum

First question, is that the fuel pump?

Second, if i manage to fill the tank back up like we did earlier its struggling to keep its idle and is spluttering and feels like its now not firing on all cylinders, when i give it the slightest bit of throttle it wants to stall, could that sort itself out or is it wise to crack the fuel rails off a bit and let any air out?

Thanks once again for any advice

I must add the photos are taken underneath the bus looking up at the sump, the black thing in question is sandwiched between the chassis rail and under the exhaust manifold.

Tighten up the oil pan all the way round. Looks wet to me. Re-check for leaks as bus runs. New gasket might be in order for oilpan.

Hard on starter as it holds heat when a starter prefers cool air all round it.
