It should typically run with more power compared to gas.
Gas has double the energetic value compared to methanol, but you can burn approximately 2.5 times the amount of methanol with the same amount of air (displacement volume).

You can hook a spark ignition to a glow engine no problem, provided you follow instructions that come with the ignition set

With a spark ignition, you can let go of Nitro, the engine does not need it anymore, because it is the spark that determines ignition timing, not Nitro content, motor temperature and plug grade. But take care that you use the same amount of oil and the same quality as you would with a glowplug.
