Any chance you have a wider picture? I'm trying to figure out what part of the motor we're looking at. Left or ride side, etc.

It's called a fuel damper.
I believe the correct part number for your vehicle is 22675-EV10B

Thank you, sir! Lovin' this forum, and appreciate your help. is it possible that it's just an o-ring leak under it?

Possibly, but the o-ring is in a fixed location, not a moving part. I think a leaking damper would be more likely due to failed internal components.

However, for the relatively low cost of an o-ring, it shouldn't hurt to try.
Part # 16618-10V10
