I would suggest that you start by comparing your raw log files with everything you can find in [webmasterworld.com...]
You will be amazed at how much bandwidth is wasted

There are a few 3rd party products around that even in their free version can give you a good indication of what is using up your bandwidth. Usually they used for optimizing load time, but I found that applying the recommendations also resulted in reducing bandwidth significantly. (I will send you a link to a tool via sticky - not affiliated but happy user of that tool).

If possible, try to switch on compression for HTML / CSS / JS files with GZip. Saves a lot!

In addition to compression, image cache headers are your friend!

Maybe something like piwik web analytics will help.

Do you have shell access and raw Apache server logs? If so, I can give you some onliner awk commands which will do exactly what you need.

I just noticed this thread in my control panel and that I never responded to anyone, I apologize, my email notifications go to an address that I almost never look at.
anyway I did do some log analysis and found a couple of things that were legit, so it does seem like it's ok
motorhaven if you still have those awk commands though I'd definitely give it a shot, we have about 2 months of logs on a rolling basis
