Hi and welcome!
It is definitely worth your while to use an additive for the fuel. You will get 1001 opinions on what is best but stick to a good name brand and try a couple out. See what suits your driving style and climate. More is not better so adding "extra" to the tank is wasting money.
Can't help ya on the fuel pressure issue. I would think that if it was leaking out of the filter housing that had no effect on the pump. It was pumping .....just not where it should be. Running low fuel levels in the tank is the worst. The pump will pick up air and/ or overheat. Fuel is the coolant for the pump as well as lubricant. There is a CP4 disaster prevention kit (look it up) that supposedly prevents particulate from invading your fuel system if the pump fails. Though I have not heard first hand experience where someone had a pump fail with that kit installed and what the results are.
