Mmm, maybe you can try to peek holes in it. The way I usually do it is:

mount -o loop img /mnt/mnt
dd < /dev/zero > /mnt/mnt/foo bs=1M
rm -f /mnt/mnt/foo
umount /mnt/mnt
cp --sparse=always img img2

(I guess you have already thought about apt-clean & such to already
remove as much data as possible?)
