Please help: Smell Diesel, Runs rough then quits, lots of blue smoke wont start

Going down the road, started smelling the faint smell of diesel. Stopped someplace while my wife ran in and noticed my truck idling a little rough and sounded a little funny but didnt think much about it. When we went to leave I got into it a lil bit to see if itll clear up and it seemed to and when I went to cruise the truck got progressively worse, no power, really rought til it quit.. all in about 1/4 mile. Pulled over, tried to start nothing. Let it sit awhile and it started smooth but with a huge cloud of blue smoke, then started getting rought until it quit again. Checked the oil and I am down to the bottom portion of dip stick so its gone through a good bit of oil. Pulled my codes and had the following:

P1212
P0541
P0236

Just went out to start it and had my wife watch under the hood to see if there was fuel leak. Once I pedaled it tolife (will not idle on its own) she started seeing smoke coming from valley, and smell of diesel. We cut it got a flashlight and crawled up on the engine bay and you can see a shiny sheen in the valley.

sounds like your fuel bowl is leaking and your not keeping constant pressure
