Why a trip from the lunar surface to LEO? I was referring purely to fuel production on the Moon. Obviously for usage scenarios, you have to do extra calculations, but since no particular one was mentioned, I didn't take that into consideration. In the specific usage scenario for fueling a trip to Mars - assuming you actually meant "Moon as a stepping stone" (otherwise the rest of your text doesn't seem to make sense) -, the logistics for that was studied recently at MIT, with promising results.
