The input data might be different, but also the state stored in the smart contract might be different (and change e.g. the number of times a loop iterates). Also, if storing nonzero data in a state variable that previously held zero data, or vice versa, will change the gas usage. For example, a simple function that toggles a boolean variable will not use the same amount of gas on any two consecutive calls.
