Probably tire pressure. I'm the same as you in terms of getting more mileage than others. I am around 150lbs so a little lighter than average I'm guessing but mostly I think it's because I run 32/40 (roughly, depending on ambient temp) and that keeps the profile and a smaller contact patch. I'm only guessing but I bet most other riders here run quite a bit lower pressures.
