I'm moving my range from one side of the kitchen to the other. I have
to move the gas line of course, but I'm wondering if I can use an
existing outlet for the ignition circuit. The old line was a
dedicated 20amp circuit that I would like to use for other things.
The new stove location has a 15amp circuit with four fixtures on it.
Can I simply plug the stove into this outlet, and could I also run
electric to a vent hood from the same outlet? Are there likely to be
any Philadelphia code issues with this?

Might be a good idea to check your use&care manual to see what the
manufacture of the range suggests.
A copy from my manual....
"Gas range - 110 -120 volt, 60 hertz, properly grounded branch
circuit protected by a 15/20 amp circuit breaker or fuse. Must be
properly grounded and polarized. #14 gauge house wire minimum for 15
amp protection, #12 gauge is a must for 20 amp protection."
