Here some things to check:

Produce tar files rather than tar.gz files and see if the size
difference is still present.  The ordering of files in a tar file
might affect how efficient the compression is.

Get a directory listing of both tar files (-tv) and see if they
contain exactly the same files, and with exactly the same lengths.

Do a tree file comparison between the files that go into the original
tar and the ones that go into the new tar.
