```I don't quite understand what you mean by "processing unrelated
numbers", but ...
first of all , you can just map your test function onto range of
integers, e.g.

And @@ (PrimePi[2#] - PrimePi[#] ¡Ã 1 & /@ Prime/@Range[2,100])

True

Of course if you want to know the actual difference you can use:

In[17]:=
PrimePi[2#]-PrimePi[#]&/@Prime/@Range[2,100]

Out[17]=
{1,1,2,3,3,4,4,5,6,7,9,9,9,9,11,13,12,13,14,13,15,15,16,19,20,19,19,18,1
8,23,\
23,25,25,27,26,28,28,28,28,30,30,32,32,32,32,35,38,38,38,39,39,39,41,42,
43,42,\
42,42,42,42,44,49,50,49,49,54,54,56,55,55,55,57,58,59,59,60,60,60,61,64,
64,66,\
66,66,67,67,68,68,67,67,70,71,71,73,72,73,77,76,80}

and of course lots of different variants of this.
