I don't know if there is a proper grammatical answer to this - and if so I am sure one of our wonderful grammarians will tell you! But I would say "I ate two slices more than he did". But I would say "there are two more slices left - who wants them". With he other example I would say "I ran two miles further than my friend". But, "I need to run two more miles to complete the course".
