Combining Mercedes Diesel with Potato ???

Just curious... would a glowplug get hot enough, do you suppose, to fire off a spud gun? Starting fluid is my general propellant, so it wouldn't take THAT much heat to fire it off, i'm thinking that it might just do it. Of course lugging a car battery around takes the fun out of it... opinions?
