You can follow this tutorial to add a CSS file to your EPUB 3.1 book.

1. Create a CSS file, Styles.css, to control display styles of all XHTML pages:

body {font-family: "Arial";}
pre {padding: 0px 25px 0px 25px; 
  font-family: "Arial"; font-style: italic; font-size: 14pt;}
figure {text-align: center;}

2. Add Styles.css to all XHTML content files. For example,

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
<html xmlns="http://www.w3.org/1999/xhtml">
    <title>The Third Pig</title>
  <link rel="stylesheet" href="/Styles.css" type="text/css"/>
<h3>The Third Pig</h3>

3. Add Styles.css to package.opf:

    <item id="Copyright" href="/Copyright.xhtml" media-type="application/xhtml+xml"/>
    <item id="Figure-1" href="/The-Three-Little-Pigs-by-J-Jacobs.png" media-type="image/png"/>
    <item id="Styles" href="/Styles.css" media-type="text/css"/>

ZIP all files together to created 3Pigs7-3.0.epub.

Now open 3Pigs7-3.0.epub in Calibre and go to "pre" section. You see the "pre" lines are displayed differently:
