Formula feeding - Ready to feed vs. Add water

I have been noticing this for awhile now and its no coincidence.. I have a 15 week old girl and she is exclusively formula fed, has been since the day she came home from the hospital. We feed her Goodstart. We started off with the ready to feed for its convenience, but as she started eating more, this was too costly so we switched to the concentrated add water Goodstart. We still buy the ready to feed for "just in cases". Whenever I get a bit lazy, I will go a day or two and feed her the ready to feed formula. Whenever she drinks it, she drinks double of what she normally eats throughout the day when feeding the add water. She drinks approx. 25 oz a day (she is only 11lbs) but she has already eaten 23 oz in the past 12hours on the ready to feed. This happens everytime. I know I am mixing her formula properly, I am very precise. Just wondering if its just me, or if anyone other moms have noticed this too.
