To AJY, did you ever find a resolution to your odor issue? I joined this website seeking a solution to a similar problem. I painted my bedroom a grayish color using BM Ben paint & primer in one and when I finished painting, the room smelled like natural gas for days. I've used BM Ben in other rooms of the house over the past months and years with no issues at all. Not the greatest paint but gets the job done. I painted over the Ben with 2 coats of Behr and it masked some of the odor but the underlying smell is still present. Then another 2 coats of BM Regal which is probably what I should've bought in the beginning.I don't know what to do at this point. Try BIN shellac?
