There is not supposed to be oil in the pressure sensor. That usually gets in 
when someone overfills the air cleaner, or the car gets parked on a steep 
hill. Drain out what you can get out, and see how the car runs.

Those hoses on the injectors can be replaced. You have to cut the crimped 
ferrel off to get the original hose off. Then just replace the hose using a 
hose clamp at each end.

I think Jim is off the list for a few days.
Just go to a parts store and buy 5/16" gas line rated for EFI. You should 
need about 20 ft. to do the complete car. And buy a bunch of hose clamps too.
