Default Headlights & tailights - pre 1915

How do the lights work on pre electric T's? I see mentions of gas used (carbide / acetylene?). Where do you obtain the gas for the lights? Do owners have to get special permission to drive these models without hazardous placards? As far as getting a Model T inspected by NYS, I'm pretty sure that the local quick change oil lube tech wouldn't even know how to light the gas for the lights for an annual NYS DMV inspection. Is this step even required by NYS?
