The above answer already is excellent, but forgot one thing I might have added, that can also drastically increase deltaV if done. Assemble your payload in orbit. If your rocket is "limited" to a certain mass in payload, which translates into a certain amount of fuel for anything that goes from LKO to Duna or whatever, then why not shoot several separate ...
