Glow plugs are only used in diesel start up.
Diesel is different in that fuel is injected into compressed (thus hot) air, spontaneously igniting. This requires higher compression and thus needs powerful injectors. I dont know if a different injection system is used for LPG vs normal diesel fuel.
A petrol engine compresses a fuel air mix to a lower pressure, and then spark ignites. Thus with petrol it is possible to get preignition (not possible with diesel if injection timing is right).
