Hello everybody

I asked my friend to do something for me. I insisted a lot but he refused to do that.
I got angry and said:

I'll never insist that you do/will do something for me.

Can we use either Do or Will in this sentence?

Thanks.

    Thank you.Yes. But I wanted to know the structure used after I'll never insist. I don't know whether the sentence I wrote is correct.

    I would say, 'I'll never ask you doing anything for me again'.
    If you use 'insist' you can say ...
    1) I'll never insist you do anything for me.
    2) I'll never insist on you doing anything for me.

    No, I would not say this. I was simply answering Kerasmus's question, 'I wanted to know the structure used after I'll never insist'.
    to insist on + gerund

    Sorry keramus
    'I'll never ask you doing anything for me again', is incorrect. A typing error!
    This should be, ''I'll never ask you to do anything for me again.'
    or ''I'll never insist on you doing anything for me again'.
